Welcome to the Frequently Asked Questions section of the School Reopening/Re-Entry Task Force webpage. In this section, we will attempt to answer all questions to the best of our ability at the time of each update. Given the unpredictable nature of this pandemic, please account for that when reading all answers here and know that guidance, regulations, and other factors change on a daily and sometimes hourly basis.
No answer written here should be interpreted as policy by District 109 and all answers will be subject to constant review and revision.
FLEXIBILITY IS KEY
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began we have seen multiple waves of infection, ever changing guidance from the government bodies, and new information that could impact our decisions daily. While the District will endeavor to create a stable executable plan once we return to in-person education, it is likely that situations will arise that may impact specific classrooms, school buildings, and potentially the District as a whole. We have spent significant time and effort in determining the best way to approach these “what if” scenarios, but it is entirely possible that new ones will arise. We ask for understanding as this fluid situation will require flexibility and understanding by all impacted.
