IDEA Community Conditions Advisory Committee

        We are extremely grateful to the Community Conditions Advisory Committee for taking on the task of thoughtfully reviewing all available public health data and other factors, including parent and staff feedback through our parent surveys, and making clear recommendations.  Our expectation is that this diligence will allow our staff, parents, and students to plan for a successful Spring Semester.

       The committee convened on Wednesday, January 27, to look at the current community spread of COVID-19, and to review the metrics set in October 2020 for reopening. Follow this link to see the committee’s recommendations and our Reopening Benchmark Chart:
