Return to School Plan | 2020-2021

Hybrid / "Yellow" Plan

Physically Distanced, Still In-Person

As of August 1, we plan to open the school year in this model; it is difficult to predict how long DSHA will remain in this plan at this time. 

Plan Description | 
In the physical-distanced plan, the DSHA building will be open to deliver our mission with face-to-face instruction but will include a rotating in-person schedule with 50% of students learning in-person and 50% learning remotely (synchronously and asynchronously). 
  • This hybrid model is organized in cohort groups by alphabet, and will see students engaging in learning  not only with the teacher and classmates in person, but also through experiences like Microsoft Teams’ groups discussions and presentations, video lessons, posted content, projects, and other work.
  • The current City of Milwaukee health codes require physical distancing. In compliance, a hybrid rotational schedule allows for all students to engage in both regular in-person learning and online learning.  
  • This plan includes all of the essential elements of the DSHA, whole-person approach to educating young women of faith, heart, and intellect, with classroom learning and student activities in person at 50% capacity, and with some potential modifications or restrictions based on current Center for Disease Control (CDC) and City of  Milwaukee Health Department guidelines and outlined in the safety section of this plan.

The hybrid plan is the most complicated plan.
  • Our preference will always be the fully in-person option, when permitted.
  • The trajectory of COVID-19, its impact specifically on the DSHA community, requirements rendered upon us by the CDC or City of Milwaukee Health Department, evolving understanding of safety measures, weather, and DSHA programming (retreat support) will determine how or if we move in or out of the different scenarios.

Hybrid Plan | How will it work?

List of 6 items.

  • Feedback/Survey Response

    Based on feedback given in our summer parent and faculty survey, this schedule was the preferred option.
  • Weekly Schedule

    • Monday & Tuesday | The same group (Red) attends classes the first two days while the other group (Gold) learns remotely.
    • Wenesday | All students, Red and Gold group, learn remotely on Wednesday.
    • Thursday & Friday | Gold group attends in-person on Thursday and Friday while the Red group learns remotely. This schedule would repeat each week. 
  • Red & Gold Group Class Breakdown

    Gold Group | Second half of the alphabet*

  • Notes for Understanding

    Rationale for alphabetical format | In our summer survey several suggestions were made to create a hybrid format based on an entire class, i.e. Class of 2024, etc.
    • We recognize the alphabetic arrangement doesn’t bring different halves of the alphabet together. However, the challenges with the entire class version requires that each section has two adults assigned each hour, puts students in the position to be learning via a screen for 50% of the time inside the building, and minimally creates as many transportation concerns as the alphabetic split or perhaps more. 
    • The advantages of the alphabetical arrangement includes encouraging girls to get to know new members of her class, gives students 100% face-time with teachers while in the building, and has some juniors and seniors coming to school each day who, perhaps, can assist with appropriate carpooling.
     
    Notes on Red/Gold groups as it relates to physical distancing | In the hybrid scenario, please understand that our margin for creating a physically distanced classroom is narrow.
    • Our typical classrooms can only fit 16 students physically distanced. Some classrooms are smaller and some larger.
    • We have analyzed each section carefully prior to announcing the Red and Gold groups.
    • We are confident that we can physically distance each classroom with the assigned Red and Gold groups.
    • It will not be possible for us to change groups due to friend groups or carpooling.

(*Please note, each class delineation is different.)

Class of 2024  
  • Red | last names beginning with A-K
  • Gold | last names beginning with L-Z              
 
Class of 2023    
  • Red | last names beginning with A – Le  
  • Gold | last names beginning with Li – Z      
 
Class of 2022      
  • Red | last names beginning with A – Me  
  • Gold | last names beginning with Mi – Z          
 
Class of 2021
  • Red | last names beginning with A – Ka
  • Gold | last names beginning with Ke - Z

Moderate Risk Scenario

The hybrid plan is considered a moderate risk plan. In addition, all of the same safety measures as the fully in-person plan, students will be physically distanced in all instructional spaces, and DSHA will essentially have 50% of the student body in attendance daily.
