2020-21 Reopening Plan

July 12, 2020
Below is an overview of how our school will reopen as of August 24, 2020. In the earliest phase of reopening priority will be given to instructional time and social-emotional connections between students and faculty and staff members. In the event that any student is unable to attend classes in person for health reasons, she can complete her studies through our eLearning platform, receiving the same quality of instruction. Additionally, all extracurricular activities will transition to a virtual environment, and the building will be open only for classes. Please note that the details outlined pertain only to Block 1 (Aug. 24 - Oct. 29, 2020). As the state of Illinois assesses the safety of in-person learning, changes could be made to the plan.
