Phased Approach to Reentry

The plan uses a phased approach to reentry, that includes data-driven and safety-minded gating criteria. The aim of this approach is, first and foremost, to protect the health and wellbeing of our students and staff, while mitigating the likelihood of COVID-19 exposure, and maximizing opportunities for learning.

Phase 1: Risk of spreading COVID-19 is significant. Requires Significant Mitigation.

All schools are closed. Students not physically attending school and are completing coursework through remote learning. HCS is prepared to support students’ well-being and academic development remotely for an extended period of time.

Phase 2: Risk of spreading COVID-19 is moderate but increasing. Requires Moderate Mitigation.

Reduced on-campus hours for all schools, with two days per week of face-to-face instruction for each student. Students will work remotely the remaining three days of the week, resulting in a hybrid learning model. Short-term closure procedures (remote learning) will occur for COVID-19 affected buildings. Phase 2 health and safety guidelines are in place.

Phase 3: Risk of spreading COVID-19 is minimal. Requires Minimal Mitigation.

Schools are open; however, short-term closure procedures will occur for COVID-19 affected buildings. These short-term closures may be followed by reopening with reduced on-campus hours (moving between remote and hybrid learning). Phase 3 health and safety guidelines are in place.

Phase 4: No risk of community transmission of COVID-19. Requires No Mitigation.

All schools are open. Curriculum delivered on campus via face-to-face instruction, with blended learning strategies that integrate digital resources. HCS will monitor and be prepared to react to identification of COVID-19 positive tests that affect staff members or students. Additional health and safety guidelines may be enacted in consultation with the Health Department.
