COVID-19 Burden Level, District Dashboard & FAQ Update

Dear Shorewood Families,
As you know, elementary school students who registered for Hybrid in-person learning will return to buildings on Monday, January 25th. School principals and leadership teams have been working diligently on preparations to make sure that classrooms and other learning spaces are safe and welcoming for these student cohorts, faculty and support staff. Faculty and support staff have also been continuing to improve upon their virtual learning instruction for those students who will remain remote during the second semester.
The community COVID-19 burden level and school information will continue to be reported weekly on the District’s COVID Dashboard to keep families informed about cases, and to update monitoring thresholds. As of Friday, January 15, the COVID-19 burden level was 441 as reported by the North Shore Health Department. This means SIS (< 400) and SHS (< 300) students will continue in our Virtual+ Learning Model through at least February 12.
To assist families in navigating the upcoming transitions, our administrative staff worked together to compile an extensive Frequently Asked Questions document. This document is currently available on the District website, will be promoted via social media, and will be updated often throughout the semester. Principals and teachers are also available to answer any site-specific questions you may have.
As always, thank you for continuing to partner with us to support all of our Shorewood students.
Bryan Davis
Shorewood Schools Superintendent
