Latest on JP Schools Reopening Plans for 2020-21 (Updated 6/24/2020)

  • Below are some of the plans we have in place for reopening schools. It was developed following the most recent CDC Guidance for Reopening Schools. 

    Any scenario that involves students attending school in-person will include the following safety precautions:

    • Students and staff will be required to wear face coverings
    • Social distancing protocols established and communicated with all stakeholders
    • Temperature checks for all students, employees, and visitors
    • Teachers and staff members ensure students follow all COVID-19 safety measures
    • Students follow altered routines for lunch, restroom breaks, bus un/loading, and other travel patterns
    • Bus capacity will be limited when necessary to ensure all students can arrive at school safely, on time, and following CDC guidance

    We’re preparing for three possible scenarios to open the year: traditional, hybrid/blended, and 100% virtual. The district will be prepared to immediately shift to virtual instruction should school closure become necessary during the school year. Some of the details of our three reopening scenarios include:

    Traditional Setting

    • Students attend school five days a week using additional safety precautions
    • Staff report to school daily

    Hybrid/Blended Setting

    • Student attend school 2-3 days of the week and receive virtual instruction the other days of the week
    • District will support families to meet their technology needs
    • Staff report to school daily and provide in-person and virtual instruction and support

    Virtual Setting

    • Students do not report to school and receive instruction 100% virtual
    • District will support families to meet their technology needs
    • Staff report to school on predetermined days
    • Staff provide support and synchronous instruction via Google Meet and asynchronous instruction via Google Classroom

    These plans only pertain to opening schools. We will continue to provide guidance throughout the summer regarding:

    • Updated safety measures
    • Attendance requirements
    • Student recovery for unfinished learning
    • Preparing students and teachers for various learning methods
    • Social/emotional learning
    • Staff and student policies and procedures

    The safety of our students and staff is our top priority. Our school-based plans will be fluid and routinely adjusted to reflect updated national, state, and local guidance.
