We understand that parents may have mixed emotions about sending their children back to school. We also know that students may experience a variety of emotions about returning. We want to reassure you that we have been working tirelessly over the summer to safely prepare for reopening our schools.
Berwyn North School District 98 (BN98) plays an essential role, along with our local health department, in protecting our community’s health and safety during this pandemic. Please note that these safety directives and guidance are not locally created or specific to Berwyn North 98, but are mandated. This pandemic has impacted our entire world. Schools in Illinois and across the country are figuring out the best way to keep students and staff safe as we prepare to re-engage in teaching and learning.
All decisions regarding changes are informed by feedback from parents, staff, community, and the most recent data on COVID-19. In addition, we must adhere to the guidelines set by the Governor, the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH).
In the development of our school re-engagement plan, we have set the following goals:
Implement and adhere to all relevant health and safety recommendations/requirements of the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Illinois State Board of Education.
Provide a learning environment that is as normal as possible
Provide a quality remote learning option for families
Ensure a heavy focus on social emotional learning and the health and safety of everyone.
Maximize instructional focus to ensure students are mastering critical learning skills, specifically in Mathematics and Literacy.
Creatively problem solve to provide a balanced learning environment which includes exploratory learning to the extent possible and practical.
Work and plan to seamlessly transition from remote to in-person learning and vice versa throughout the school year as necessary.
This chart outlines our plan for returning to In-person instruction:
|Transition I||Transition II||Transition III|
|Full Remote Learning||Hybrid||In-person Instruction|
|We will begin the school year with full remote instruction and revisit our plan after 5 weeks.||After 5 weeks of remote instruction, we will reevaluate our plan to determine if we can safely transition to a Hybrid model.||Once a vaccination is widely available, we will return to full in-person instruction|
