Proposed school opening plan outlined

by Dr. Michael C. Garrett, Superintendent Joint School District #171

Happy Friday to all!

There are many things going on with the district but none more on the front burner than the opening plans for our district and schools.

I am linking our Proposed Plan which is still in DRAFT form. We have some cleanup work to do but we wanted to get the general plan out to as many people as possible. Our goals are to teach students in building as much as possible while keeping students and staff as safe as possible.

This plan will be taken to our Board of Trustees on Monday at our virtual meeting. The Board of Trustees will have the final say in opening our schools next month. Please keep in mind this plan is fluid and will change with new data and decisions from Public Health as well as the ever changing pandemic.

I want to thank everyone for their input in creating this plan. I have said this many times but it is worth mentioning one more. Everyone has input and opinions which are valued in the creation of plans. Please note, however, that not all items can be implemented and ultimately some will not get what they had hoped for. It is a part of the process of collaboration and is by far the most difficult to swallow. I sincerely appreciate the ongoing support of our students, staff and communities.

Have a great weekend!
