Good Morning West Harrison! As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday I wanted to send out a message to provide some clarification. We have had some cases of COVID, but the percentage of positive cases is low. We have also had some quarantines related to school but have had no confirmed cases of transmission take place at school. In reality, school seems to be one of the safest places to be in regards to COVID. As most of you know, the Governor issued a proclamation this week that essentially shut down junior high and youth activities until December 10th and limited attendance at high school activities to two guests per participant. The Governor mentioned re-evaluating things next week. At West Harrison, our plan continues to be to provide face-to-face instruction to students unless the Governor orders schools to be closed, the IDPH or county health advise that closing schools is necessary, or we have a situation where we do not have enough healthy staff to provide services for students. Barring one of these three things happening, we plan to continue to stay open. With that said we all know that things can change quickly so we are doing our best to be prepared. You may be hearing that staff are practicing virtual learning with kids at school, talking about scheduling, preparing to send materials home, and discussing how we would provide meals. If you would like to see our proposed virtual learning schedules and information, here is our Virtual Learning page. All of these things are happening, not because we plan to close the school, but so we are ready in the event closing becomes necessary at some point. We discussed sending materials home over Thanksgiving with our elementary students in order to evaluate any issues that may occur. We decided not to do so. Please review your plans for your children if the school were moved to 100% virtual instruction. Take some time to review the Virtual School page. Again, this is all being done to be prepared. It is our hope that it will never be necessary to use any it. I hope this helps clarify our plans for all of you. It continues to be the intent of West Harrison to have face-to-face instruction take place if at all possible. Thanks and have a great Thanksgiving!
