The most recent CDC guidance reaffirms these recommendations. It also makes clear that “to ensure physical distancing, schools should establish policies and implement structural interventions to promote physical distance of at least 6 feet between people'' while their communities are in the substantial or high transmission level, which CCSD93 is currently within. The following table from the CDC is a particularly concise summation of recommendations based on community transmission level.
It is important to note that currently the CDC and DCHD have different thresholds for data points for the transmission levels. DuPage County is currently in the substantial community transmission level according to the DCHD but would be categorized in the high transmission level by the CDC. We will continue to work with DCHD to fully understand and appropriately account for these discrepancies as we plan learning opportunities moving forward.
Exploring Potential Increased In-Person Learning Opportunities
We continue to explore opportunities for increasing the amount of in-person learning time our Hybrid Learning students experience each school week. As we enter the 3rd trimester next week, our schools will see between 51% and 74% of students participating in Hybrid Learning, depending on the school, with up to 21 combined Hybrid Learning Group A and Group B students in some classes. No school would be able to accommodate all of its Hybrid students learning at 6 feet of physical distance simultaneously, according to our classroom occupancy study that was performed prior to the start of this school year and is shown here.
When the community transmission level reaches moderate or low transmission, CDC guidance transitions to stating that “physical distancing of 6 feet or more to the greatest extent possible” should be implemented, which creates greater opportunities for CCSD93 to potentially provide in-person learning. Next week, all families will receive a survey that will seek your opinions, especially for adjustments CCSD93 may enact when our community reaches moderate or low community transmission level. Please watch for the survey.

In the meantime, CCSD93 continues to make strides to create conditions for increased in-person learning. We have worked with Glenbard District 87 and its other sender districts to roll out vaccination opportunities for our most vulnerable and potentially exposed staff members through a partnership with Jewel-Osco. As part of this partnership, we were able to work with the DCHD to ensure a portion of the vaccines were made available to the most vulnerable and potentially exposed among DuPage County community members as well. We continue to work to secure additional vaccination opportunities for the rest of our staff and will strive to ensure vaccinations are made available to our community at large.

Students Transitioning to Hybrid Learning for 3rd Trimester Start In Person Next Week
Families with students starting Hybrid Learning for the 3rd trimester will begin in person learning next week. We’re excited to welcome these students back! If your child is among them, you should have received placement information on Tuesday and busing information on Thursday of this week. Please be sure to follow the instructions included in those messages, and ensure your child adheres to these health and safety requirements.
Please Continue to Practice Safety
While we continue to see a return to normalcy begin to take shape, please continue to stay vigilant in practicing the three W's of wearing a mask, watching your distance, and washing your hands frequently to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and contributing to conditions conducive to in-person learning.
