RESPONSIBLE REOPENING PLAN

Ensuring a safe learning community for all


The Independence School is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for its students.  We are following and using all state-level guidelines and CDC guidance to inform our practices in order to responsibly reopen our campus to students.  
 
There are defined ways that we can maintain a healthy community – good hygiene habits, distancing from each other, wearing face coverings, and reducing the amount of cross contact between both students and adults.
 

Our detailed plans and protocols for a responsible reopening
are outlined below.

 


 


School Structure & Physical Organization


 


The 'Mini School' Approach

In order to reduce the amount of cross-contact between both students and adults we will be structuring as three 'mini schools' in the fall.
 
Each mini school will have a core faculty and we will reduce the number of teachers crossing between the different mini schools as much as possible. 

 

For students not returning to in-person instruction in the fall, we are offering the option of online learning for grades K-8.
