COVID Reopening Resources

Gateway Group Reopening Plans - UPDATE

Good evening, as you are probably aware, Gateway Regional has received notification of a growing number of high school students with confirmed positive cases of COVID-19. As of this letter, we have ten confirmed cases. The district is coordinating closely with local public health officials and following CDC, state, and local health department guidelines. Through contact tracing it appears these cases stem from an out of school event students attended. Anyone who is suspected of having been in close contact with a positive individual has been contacted directly. Unfortunately, due to the number of cases, we have had to quarantine high school students in our JV/Varsity boys soccer, girls tennis, field hockey, and football programs for two weeks.

These students must be quarantined for 14 days for both in-person school and sports regardless of whether or not they receive a negative test.

After conferring with local health officials, we are delaying in-person instruction for students in grades 9 through 12 until the week of October 19.

Gateway Regional still plans to open for in-person instruction for 7th and 8th grade cohorts on Tuesday, October 13.

On Tuesday (Oct. 13), students in Cohort A in grades 7 and 8, will report to school for periods 5-8.

On Thursday (Oct. 15), students in Cohort B in grades 7 and 8 will report to school for periods 1-4.

Please remember that starting on Tuesday, we will be switching to the hybrid bell schedule. That schedule is linked below with a video explaining how to understand it. The day begins promptly at 7:45 and ends at 12:17. Again, students in grades 7 and 8 will report in-person with their cohort the week of October 13 and students in grades 9 through 12 will not report in person with their cohort until the week of October 19.

Students who are quarantined or absent from school because they are feeling under-the-weather, should report to their classes virtually to receive credit for attendance. If a student is going to report virtually on their Cohort day, we ask that a parent/guardian call the main office and let the school know that their child will report virtually. Any family who wishes to change their cohort should contact Mrs. O’Connell, Director of Guidance, to discuss.

This means every student should be logging into every class, every day. Students will be required to fill out their wellness form on PowerSchool before entering the building. No Students will be allowed in the building before 7:30. We appreciate your support as we navigate through these times and work to support our students.
