BL Provides School Reopening Update; Feedback Requested

Thank you for your continued support as we plan for the reopening of the 2020-2021 school year. Our reopening task force is making necessary plans and recommendations to successfully open our doors to students in August. The task force is relying on several resources for guidance in the decision-making process: the CDC, Dallas County Health and Human Services, Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops Education Department, and the Catholic Schools Office.  
Please be assured that we are closely monitoring the steady increase in confirmed cases of COVID-19 both locally and nationally, and we are maintaining regular communications with local health authorities. Because this is a very fluid situation, we ask that you continue to follow communications from Bishop Lynch High School for updates related to reopening our school amid the COVID-19 pandemic.    
As we move forward to plan for reopening, Bishop Lynch High School is considering offering two learning options for the 2020-2021 school year. To plan thoroughly and effectively, we are asking our families to provide feedback as to the preferred option they may be considering. Please note: This is for informational purposes only and does not guarantee that BL will offer both options. If you have more than one student enrolled, you may choose a different option for each of them: 

Option 1: Full-time in-person on campus learning, with heightened hygiene and disinfection protocols  
Option 2: Full-time blended synchronous learning (at-home instruction that requires virtual attendance in classes as scheduled on a normal A/B school day)  
If a family is considering Option 2, there are other parameters that need to be communicated: families will provide the technology needs necessary for the student to be academically successful from home (laptop and internet connection)families will commit to blended synchronous learning for the entire semester and can re-evaluate attending in-person after the end of a semester; and students participating in Option 2 will only be allowed to participate in virtual extra-curricular activities.

Thank you for your continued prayers and support as we continue to plan and provide opportunities for all our students to be safe and successful at Bishop Lynch High School.
