OASD follows health and safety guidance from the Chester County Department of Health (CCDoH), including face coverings, hand-washing, symptom screening, and physical distancing of six feet to the greatest extent possible; at no time less than three feet wherever possible in school buildings. Six feet is required by all staff to staff and staff to student contact. The amount of physical distancing determines the number of students we can accommodate in our classrooms. Under the current guidelines and District educational plans, our instructional options include hybrid instruction, 100% virtual instruction, and under the new guidance, in-person instruction five days per week. 

Health authorities altered their guidance to include physical distancing of six feet to the greatest extent possible; at no time less than three feet wherever possible in school buildings. OASD is evaluating the new recommendations and considering modifications that could include expanded opportunities for in-person instruction. We are asking for your feedback to help us get a sense of how many families would be willing to consider an instructional model that includes physical distancing of less than six feet. In order to allow for less than six feet of physical distancing, the District must realize the community transmission reaching a High level and have all the necessary mitigation structures in place.  Since we have all the necessary mitigation structures in place, our only piece on which we wait is a sustained (three weeks) level of High community spread as measured by the CCDOH.  This equates to being below 100 seven-day incidence rate per 100,000 people or a seven-day percent positivity rate below ten percent, whichever is the greater transmission level.  If and when we reach the aforementioned levels, the Hybrid learning model would be replaced by the in-person instruction five days per week, and the virtual instruction only model would still be available to parents that choose to remain virtual for their children. 

Thank you for your partnership as we continue to review and refine our programs while following health and safety guidelines designed to keep all members of our school community safe.
