COVID-19 RE-OPENING PLAN-DUPAGE HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT 88 RETURN TO SCHOOL PLAN
As we continue to deal with the negative impacts of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, we would like to share the important update below.

DuPage County remains in the Substantial Community Transmission level – the highest of three levels – for the fifth consecutive week. The county is in the Substantial Community Transmission level for all six factors on the DuPage County COVID-19 School Metrics Guidance (see/click the image below for details).

As a result of these numbers, District 88 will maintain Remote Learning and will transition into an adaptive pause starting on Nov. 20, in alignment with Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker’s implementation of Phase 4 Tier 3 Mitigations (see details at https://coronavirus.illinois.gov/s/restore-illinois-mitigation-plan). This means all in-person curricular and extracurricular activities (including athletics, clubs, learning centers and in-person instruction) will be suspended until further notice. It also includes the transition of teacher aides to remote work status, and administrative, clerical and technical staff will implement intermittent remote work status to minimize exposure (specific schedules to be determined by supervisors with team input).

During its Nov. 16 meeting, the District 88 Board of Education approved the administration’s use of adaptive pauses in the event of significant increases in COVID-19 case counts, local outbreaks and/or staff shortages due to exposures and quarantines. To watch the Board meeting presentation, click on the video above.

The district will continue to provide a robust curriculum and will connect with and care for students. The district is prepared to move to a hybrid/in-person environment when data and guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Gov. Pritzker, the Illinois and DuPage County health departments, the Illinois State Board of Education and the DuPage Regional Office of Education support that decision.

IMPORTANT UPDATES REGARDING WINTER ATHLETICS
As we previously shared, we are going to continue analyzing the COVID-19 data to determine the best time frame to implement winter sports, as DuPage County remains in the Substantial Community Transmission level – the highest of three levels (see details above). This also aligns with Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker’s Phase 4 Tier 3 Mitigations that were implemented on Nov. 20 (see details at https://coronavirus.illinois.gov/s/restore-illinois-mitigation-plan). To comply with those mitigations, the Illinois High School Association (IHSA) Board has issued guidance to pause all IHSA winter sports and activities, effective Nov. 20. See the full IHSA press release at https://www.ihsa.org/News-Media/Announcements/ihsa-temporarily-pauses-sports-activities-under-new-state-mitigations.

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, Gov. 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.
