Reopening Our Schools: Information & Updates
As the Blaine County School District plans for the start of the 2020-21 school year, we are committed to keeping you informed. We are working hard to deliver a high-quality educational experience while protecting the health and safety of our students, staff and families.
At this time, we hope to reopen our school buildings to all students. As we do so, we will implement physical distancing, enhanced cleaning protocols and other measures designed to minimize risks for the people in our school buildings.
BCSD administration is planning for three scenarios this school year:
- Scenario A: All students attend school with safety precautions in place (e.g., face coverings, hand washing, physical distancing)
- Scenario B: Students attend school both in-person and virtually, using a staggered schedule: Last names A-L on Monday and Wednesday, M-Z on Tuesday and Thursdays*. Learning online the other three days.
- Scenario C: Students engage in 100% virtual learning.
The learning model we implement at any given time will depend on the status of COVID-19 in our state and region and guidance we receive from public health officials. We will continue to keep our families updated as we move forward.
*Families with children with different last names, will attend school on the days that correspond to the last name of the oldest child enrolled in BCSD so that all siblings are attending on the same days.
