Following is an email message sent yesterday afternoon from District 220:

“At the Sept. 15 Board of Education meeting, Dr. Harris shared a presentation on the metrics which will be used to determine when large groups of students can return to in-person learning. Based on recommendations from a district committee which consulted with medical and public health professionals, Barrington 220 will use five metrics. Each metric will help determine which of the above four steps the district is currently in. The five metrics include the following:

In order to determine the district’s current step, all metrics must be met for a minimum of 10 days, following the trends over that period of time.

  • Example 1: All metrics are in Step 3 for 10 days: the district is in Step 3
  • Example 2: Most metrics are in Step 3 for 10 days, except for one metric in Step 2: the district is in Step 2

The metrics status will be updated every week on Monday afternoon. You will be able to view the updated metrics by visiting this dedicated webpage. Keep in mind, all families will receive notice well in advance of any shift in steps.

Please watch the video seen here as Dr. Harris explain the metrics in depth at the Board meeting.

Timeline:

  • Next two weeks: Finalize Hybrid plan for each level.
  • Oct. 6 Board meeting: share district’s metric status and Hybrid plans
  • Oct. 7-Oct. 20: Conduct family survey (Distance Learning or Hybrid)
  • Resolve operational and staffing issues
  • Oct. 20 Board meeting: verify metrics
  • Oct. 26: “Target” Hybrid start date for all levels

*Please note, this timeline may be accelerated if possible.”

Editorial note: It would be wise to have the teacher’s union sign off on this timeline before any student or parent expectations are mismanaged (again).

Saint Anne Parish School classrooms meet all COVID compliant guidelines.

Following is a letter published yesterday by Saint Anne Parish School:

“As always, we remain committed to a safe student-centered learning environment. As you know, this school year we will be doing that by offering two main platforms of instruction: In Person Learning and Parallel Digital Instruction. Students engaged in In-Person Learning will be grouped into cohorts and abide by the safety procedures that we have put into place.

Dear Saint Anne Parish School families,

As always, we remain committed to a safe student-centered learning environment.  As you know, this school year we will be doing that by offering two main platforms of instruction:  In Person Learning and Parallel Digital Instruction.  Students engaged in In-Person Learning will be grouped into cohorts and abide by the safety procedures that we have put into place. 

Our Parallel Digital Instruction (PDI) will allow families who are not yet comfortable with In-Person Learning to live stream our teachers, and students to participate in the same curriculum as their in-person classmates while remaining a part of the St. Anne community. PDI learners will have the flexibility to rejoin their cohorts in person each trimester. However,  we have maintained our commitment to safety by setting up a desk for every PDI student in the classroom from the start of the school year regardless of their presence in the school!    Classroom set up  reflects that students will be sitting six feet apart! We hope that shows our commitment to every student and to safety.

Please review our dynamic  Saint Anne Parish School Reopening Plan  that was designed with all our stakeholders in mind – students, parents, and faculty/staff.  We are dedicated and prepared for not only a safe reopening but  it is our goal to remain open and that will take ALL of us to work together and focus on what is best for the children of Saint Anne Parish School!     In order to do so it was necessary to make adjustments to our school calendar.”
