Kent County COVID Guidelines

December 10th, 2020

Last week we mentioned a new Kent County Health Department tool that we will use to weigh more objectively the risk levels for in-person learning. Based on our review of the latest guidance, we believe that we will be able to keep all of K-8 in the building regardless of the positivity rate in Kent County (assuming we have a critical number not in quarantine). Doing so may require a few changes to some classroom routines until our local positivity rate drops below 8% and we have no active cases among students or staff, but the good news is that we should be able to maintain in-person learning for everyone even when local COVID-19 spread is high. Of course, revised recommendations or orders could change this, but we are hopeful that we will continue to have the flexibility to make very classroom-specific decisions.
