Dear Riverdale Parents, Students, Community

Each and every week we meet with the Hancock Public Health Department. One topic that is discussed in this meeting is what the alert level will be for Hancock County. We also discuss the indicators; what they mean, which ones are going to be flagged, etc. This has been very beneficial to us.  

As we continue to navigate this school year, we will continue to use resources available to us to make the best decisions for our district plan and adjust and adapt as we need to. 

One area we are making adjustments to is the plan if Hancock County moves to Level Three/Red. 

Reminder:

Level One Yellow: 0-1 indicator

Level Two Orange: 2-3 indicators

Level Three Red: 4-5 indicators

Level Four Purple: 5+ indicators


Terms to become familiar with: 

Hybrid: 1/2 of the students Monday/Tuesday(Blue) and 1/2 of the students Thurs/Fri (White).

Modified Hybrid: Everyone Mon/Tues and Thurs/Fri, Remote Learning on Wednesday. This is new.

What happens if the county does go to RED?

If the county alert level changes to RED, students will still attend school in-person either in the original Hybrid Schedule, with a Modified Hybrid Schedule, or continue as we currently are. This is subject to change based on county and local data from the health department, and as always we should be prepared to adjust and adapt. At any time, regardless of the county color, we may go remote or hybrid depending on our situation in our school. I can't stress the importance of being prepared to adjust and adapt. 

 What is "Modified Hybrid"?

Hybrid: 1/2 of the students Monday/Tuesday(Blue) and 1/2 of the students Thurs/Fri (White).

Modified Hybrid: Everyone Mon/Tues and Thurs/Fri, Remote Learning on Wednesday. This is new.

The point is to have a continuum of approaches from least restrictive (every day) to most restrictive (remote). This can be applied to the whole district, to K-5 or 6-12, or by wing and at any county level.

Thank you for your continued support and cooperation. If you have any questions you can check out our FAQ on the COVID Resources page or feel free to contact the school at 419-694-2211.

 Yours in Education,
