Important updates from District 88

COVID-19 RE-OPENING PLAN-DUPAGE HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT 88 RETURN TO SCHOOL PLAN
DuPage County remains in the Substantial Community Transmission level for the fourth consecutive week. The county is now in the Substantial Community Transmission level for all six factors on the DuPage County COVID-19 School Metrics Guidance (https://www.dupagehealth.org/ImageRepository/Document?documentId=4238). In the DuPage County Health Department model (http://www.dupagehealth.org/ReturnToSchool), there are three levels of transmission we are monitoring weekly: Minimal, Moderate and Substantial Community Transmission. Each of these levels is determined by the following factors:

* As health experts learn more about COVID-19 and community spread, these metrics may be modified or changed.

DuPage County’s level of COVID-19 community transmission is determined by the highest category in which a single metric is met or exceeded. When considering a shift to more in-person learning, all metrics should be under the identified thresholds for a given level for at least two consecutive weeks.

These numbers and trends are concerning, which is why maintaining Remote Learning is the best course of action at this time. We will continue to connect with and care for students and will provide a robust curriculum. We also are prepared to move to a hybrid/in-person environment when the data and guidance support that decision. We want our students back in our buildings – but more importantly, we want them safe and healthy. For more information about District 88’s Return to School Plan, go to www.dupage88.net/ReturnToSchoolPlan.

IMPORTANT UPDATES

  1. Afternoon resource time will remain remote for all students, teachers and teacher aides.

  2. Teachers will host office hours during resource for their own classroom students who need more help/support remotely.

  3. Teachers may require a student to meet with them during resource.

  4. Teachers are expected to schedule mandatory resource time minimally once a week for students who are experiencing academic difficulty and/or are below a grade of “C.” However, all students are able to access Resource Period, regardless of their grade.

  5. Students will be required to attend their assigned Resource Period on Thursdays.

  6. All student-support resources (Library Media Center, Academic Resource Center and LSC) will remain available during Resource Period.

IMPORTANT UPDATES REGARDING WINTER ATHLETICS
Winter sports are scheduled to begin on Nov. 16, but based on the county’s current status (see details above), we are going to continue analyzing the data to determine the best time frame. We plan to run the sports listed below, but the start date for the season is to be determined (TBD). We understand the value and importance of athletics for students’ physical and mental well-being, and we will work with our coaches to ensure we stay connected with and support our pupils.

Winter sports:

At this time, we ask all student-athletes who plan to participate in winter sports to register online. This will help with a smooth transition after we’re able to start the season.

To ensure the health and safety of our students, staff, families and community members, we are following guidance and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker, the Illinois and DuPage County health departments, the Illinois State Board of Education and the DuPage Regional Office of Education. At this time, we haven’t received approval from those organizations to allow Boys and Girls Basketball to take place during the winter season. We will continue to monitor this sport and will share any provided updates.
