Good Morning, Warren Warriors:
Last night, the Warren CUSD 205 Board of Education unanimously supported and adopted the 2020-2021 Return-to-School Plan. While the plan is thorough with over 20 pages of content regarding our plans for this school year, this situation remains fluid as we learn more about COVID-19. The plan is contingent upon the governor, health agencies, the state board of education, and the health of the school district. Therefore, we will still need your continued attention and support as we progress through these unprecedented times.
Please read and become familiar with the plan in its entirety as it will be critical to the function of school this upcoming year. Attached you can find the entire plan as well as a letter which summarizes the plan. Our team is very confident that we produced a plan that works best for our school district and community based on the surveys and feedback received from staff as well as families.
At this time, if you have not completed the mandatory enrollment survey, it is imperative this is filled out as soon as possible with a deadline of August 1. This is necessary for us to make the final preparations allowing us to operate safely and successfully.
With that being said, these difficult times present challenges. It is practically impossible to make everyone, or anyone, 100% happy with the plan, but we did our best to address the needs and concerns of our staff, students, and community. I feel our team, who spent extensive hours in building this plan, captured that objective.
This is our plan if:
- our region continues to be in Phase 4; and
- our district’s health continues to allow for such an opening.
If either of these situations downgrade, we would pivot to the remote learning for all plan which is also included in the document. This could happen with very little notice. We apologize in advance if the district must make such a quick decision, but we urge families to currently have plans in place for both scenarios.
Finally, the school calendar was updated in lieu of this plan and the new mandated holiday on Election Tuesday.
Students’ opening day will now be Thursday, August 20.
November 3, Election Day, now requires schools to be off, remote learning is not even an option on this day.
This has moved the students’ final attendance day to May 20.
Thank you all for your time and cooperation.
