    The graphics below are designed to help you have a conversation with your student about coming back to school this fall.

Two Options, Three Phases

  • Two learning options are available: virtual and in-person

    • All families must complete a Learning Option Commitment Form for each student, to select in-person learning or ARC (Accelerated and Remote Courses) virtual instruction
    • This form is due on or before Aug. 2, and can be completed in the SIS Portal.
    • Flexibility to transfer between virtual and in-person learning options will be offered for the first four weeks of school, to ensure that families are able to select the plan that best fits their student’s needs.
    • Families can learn more about ARC virtual instruction by watching this informational webinar for parents and guardians. Click the link below to watch:

    Our plan has three phases to respond to COVID-19 spread in our community

    • Movement between these phases can be influenced by a number of factors, including St. Louis County Department of Public Health guidance.

    • Phase 1
      • Students attend daily in-person with social distancing measures to the best of our ability.
      • Students also may choose ARC (Accelerated Remote Courses) full-time virtual instruction.
    • Phase 2
      • Students who attend in-person will follow an alternating day schedule, based on the student’s last name.
      • Students will attend in-person either Tuesday and Thursday or Wednesday and Friday. On the other days, students will participate in virtual instruction or independent work.
    • Phase 3
      • All learning will take place virtually.

Facilities, Health and Safety

  • Daily Health Screenings

    • All students and staff will complete a daily health screening at home prior to coming to school.
    • If COVID-19 symptoms are present, you must stay home.

    Face Coverings

    • All students and staff must bring a face covering to school.
    • Face coverings will be required for all staff, and students in grades K-12.
    • Face coverings must be worn on the bus at all times.

    Cleaning

    • Cleaning will be done more thoroughly and frequently throughout the day.
    • Hand sanitizer and cleaning supplies will be available in every classroom.
    • We will promote healthy handwashing techniques.

    Smaller Class Sizes, Minimizing Student Contacts

    • We will reduce class sizes and support social distancing to the best of our ability.
    • We will schedule strategically to minimize student transitions and number of contacts during the day to the best of our ability.
    • Our district architects at Perkins+Will have closely examined all learning spaces districtwide to mine space, guide classroom layouts, and leverage larger learning spaces to allow students to work independently.

    Food Service

    • Meals will be “Grab and Go,” and students will eat in a socially distanced environment.

    Separate Health Rooms

    • We are designating two separate health rooms in each school.
    • One room will be for normal school nurse visits, such as daily medications.
    • The other room will be for students presenting with symptoms of an illness.

    Trained Contact Tracers

    • We have trained contact tracers on staff in each building to ensure proper notification protocols are followed when an individual tests positive for COVID-19.

    No Outside Visitors

    • Schools will be closed to outside visitors, including family members.
    • Exceptions will be made for essential business only.

Transportation

    • We encourage all families to pick up and drop off students from school if possible. This will allow us to social distance on buses to the best of our ability.

    • Bus transportation will be limited.
      • Elementary school students must live more than .5 miles from school
      • Middle and high school students must live more than 1 mile from school
      • Considerations will be made to create safe walk-to-school zones and avoid hazards (ex: four-lane highways)
    • All families who qualify for and need bus transportation must sign up for service. More information about this will be shared soon.
