RB Students and Families,

The District 208 COVID-19 Transition Committee, consisting of parents, students, faculty, and
administration met on Wednesday, June 24, 2020.

Below are few key takeaways from the committee’s second meeting to keep stakeholders up to
date:
  • Committee Timeline - A Final decision and plan for the 2020-2021 school year will be
    communicated to the public no later than Monday, August 3.
  • On June 23, 2020, the ISBE and IDPH issued guidance for opening the 2020-2021
    school year. The committee is reviewing this 60+ page document.
  • Remote Learning: An updated remote learning schedule has been developed in the
    event the District has to implement remote learning at any time during the 2020-21
    school year. This plan would include regular face-to-face interactions with teachers via a
    virtual platform (ZOOM, Google Meets, etc..) and daily virtual office hours for teachers to
    meet with students.
  • Safety: The safety subcommittee is developing general guidelines for any “in-person”
    learning. Such as:
    • Temperature checks at arrival for all employees, students, and visitors.
    •  Masks will be required for everyone inside the building.
    • Water fountains will be shut off - water bottle dispensers will only be available.
    • Teachers will re-organize classroom layouts.
    • Hand sanitizer will be available in each classroom.
    • Increased cleaning and sanitizing by custodial staff
  • Residency - Document verification will be online. After verification, an email will be sent
    to parents for an in-person appointment during the week of August 3-7.
  • Freshman Orientation - A tentative date of August 12, 2020. Plans are still being
    developed by the Student Association sponsors. A portion will be done “in-person.”
  • Student Activities - No official update at this time. The Administration is working with the
    Instructional Coach for Fine Arts to identify safety guidelines for choral and band
    classes/performances.
