Reopening Task Force Update: July 6, 2020

July 6, 2020

The Lindbergh Schools School Reopening Task Force gathered for the sixth time on Wednesday, July 1 to continue its work creating a safe, equitable and high-quality plan for returning to school that meets the diverse needs of students within this current pandemic.

During the meeting, task force subcommittees began finalizing protocols for reopening school, and reviewed school capacity models that support social distancing, which have been developed by the district’s architects.

Based on community feedback and the ability to do our best to support social distancing in buildings, the task force is finalizing details in order to offer two separate options for students:

  • Full-time, in-person instruction
  • A high-quality virtual learning experience for families who need or prefer this option.

School Reopening Plan Coming Soon

School districts across the St. Louis region are planning to share their reopening plans with the community on Monday, July 20. Lindbergh Superintendent Dr. Tony Lake has been meeting regularly with school superintendents from across the region to ensure that Lindbergh’s reopening plan is consistent with surrounding school districts and aligns with St. Louis County Health Department guidance. We are mindful that these guidelines and recommendations could change, and we will remain flexible as we work to accomplish our most important goal, which is to do what is best for kids and families.

The School Reopening Task Force’s primary goal is to provide a safe, high-quality learning environment for all students and staff, and create a plan that meets the diverse needs of students within this current pandemic. This group will meet weekly over the summer and share a draft plan with the community in mid-July. Until then, the district will share weekly updates via email and online.
