At the October meeting, the Board approved a plan to phase into full in-person learning from the alternating schedule scenario at the secondary level. Pending Platte County Health Department approval, the plan allows for in-person students in grades 6-8 to return to daily in-person instruction starting November 30. With this change, families will be informed that there is increased possibility of student quarantine due to the increased number of students per classroom and limited ability for complete 6-foot physical distancing. Families with in-person 6th-8th grade students should complete the e-Form on Parent Portal by October 23, to indicate if these plans have changed their preferred learning scenario.
Under the proposed plan, at the start of second semester (January 11) students at PCHS will have an opportunity to return to full in-person instruction. Remote learning will continue to be a scenario, and families will receive another declaration e-form for selecting their student’s second semester scenario by November 13.
The proposed plan is a result of working with the Platte County Health Department, other local health professionals, and other school districts in Platte County to determine a holistic criteria for returning to school. The criteria considers qualitative and quantitative goals with regards to mental health, behavioral health, food security, workforce availability, hospitalizations,
cases, testing, and transmission.
