Back-to-School Update:
In-Person or Virtual, You Have a Choice.

We take learning seriously. So we are taking several steps to ensure City Charter High School students continue their education during these unusual times.

TWO OPTIONS
1) We will be welcoming students back to our campus this trimester using a modified classroom schedule to assure social distancing and safety. Students will attend either morning or afternoon sessions.

2) For parents or students who may be uncomfortable with returning to in=person classes,, we will be permitting students to study remotely via our City High Virtual Academy for the trimester. Classes will be taken online at Lincoln Learning Solutions. (Any student can choose to enroll in the City High Virtual Academy. However, enrollment for the first trimester of the 2020-21 school year must be submitted by Friday, July 31st for currently enrolled 9-12th grade students)

New student applicants will be given an extended deadline for City High Virtual Academy based on their application completion date.

Here’s the good part. Both traditional in-person classmates and Virtual Academy classmates can change their preference during the first two weeks, like a trial period.

SAFETY FIRST
In addition to our normal facility security efforts like ID-secure entrances, monitoring cameras, ballistic lobby and panic switches throughout, we are adding ALL CDC suggested measures https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/guidance-for-schools.html

These measures include:

  • Infrared Temperature Scans
  • Required Mask Wearing
  • Sanitizing Stations
  • New Daily Cleaning Protocols
  • Ventilation Upgrades
  • Bi-weekly Electrostatic Cleaning of Floors
  • Electrostatic Cleaning of the Entire School Weekly
  • Separate Entrances and Exits
  • One-way Hallways
  • 6-ft. Spacing around Desks
  • Plexiglas Barriers in Designated Areas
  • Other Physical Distancing Practices throughout the School

ANOTHER BRIGHT LIGHT
To make school seem normal – or as normal as possible – we are also taking measures to enhance City High’s social component, which may be what students have been missing most during stay-at-home orders. For students opting to come to school (either the morning or afternoon session), or the online learning students, lunch will occur in a small cohort, whereby our online students can virtually join to increase connection among classmates, and designated teachers.

ONE NOTE:
Should reopening guidelines change and Allegheny County change its safety designation, we will respond accordingly. We have contingency plans in place to transition to school-wide distance-learning. Rest assured, these decisions will be student-centric and in the best interests of our families and community.

IMPORTANT DEADLINES:
