Our Safe Return to School Plans
As families learned earlier this week, plans have been made for the phases scheduled for face-to-face learning. The dates are listed as anticipated as we will continue evaluating the impact of COVID-19 on our local community, and are prepared to make changes if deemed necessary. Any changes will not move the timeline up sooner but would delay the implementation of a phase. Families that have requested to return to in-person learning will receive all relevant information, including transportation details, prior to their return date. Our goal is to give at least two weeks notice to families.
Anticipated Student Return Dates - For students that have opted in for in-person learning:
Phase 1 - 10/22/20- Integration A students at Southern, George Read, and William Penn; Communication and Social Learning (CASL) at Southern, Intensive Learning Center (ILC) at Southern
( The programs listed above in Phase 1 are special programs that students were in prior to COVID)
Phase 2 - 10/29/20- Students at Leach, Adult Integration at Leach, Colwyck Pre-K students (CEEP)
Phase 3 - 11/9/20- All Elementary Schools (all elementary students who are not in the special programs from Phase 1), Intensive Learning Center (ILC) at Gunning Bedford, Communication and Social Learning (CASL) students at Gunning Bedford, Integration B at George Read, identified classes at William Penn High School
Phase 4 - 11/30/20- All Middle Schools (all middle school students who are not in the special programs from Phase1 and 3) Wallace Wallin Intensive Learning Center (ILC), William Penn High Integration B
