Timeline and Basic Information for "Return to School"
Timeline and Basic Information for "Return to School"

Dear Geneva Families, 

Due to the approval process with the local health department and input from various school and district personnel, the Return to School Plan will not be shared with the community until the week of August 10th (see below).  I know for some of you, this does not provide adequate time for making some decisions about the school year.  As a District, we understand and we will do our best to continue to update you as much as we can during the coming weeks.  Changes are happening daily and we continue to adapt to new guidance, policies and information.  

As mentioned in the the family survey that was provided, we plan to have an in-school option following the safety guidelines that have been mandated and recommended over the past month.  In addition, Geneva Schools will have a fully online option.  Geneva teachers will assist in monitoring this online option and provide additional support.  This  option will be available for families that may not feel comfortable returning to school to begin the 2020-21 school year.  More information will be shared in the coming weeks.  

Thank you for your support and patience!  

Stay Safe!  Stay Healthy!...and Stay Positive!
