“The health metrics dictated that move back in July, but improving health metrics are allowing us to responsibly consider going back to the hybrid model,” she said.
The phased plan includes:
Phase 1: students and their families decide by Sept. 14 preference for hybrid model of partial in-person classes or remaining all virtual.
Phase 2: In-person hybrid model begins Sept. 28.
Phase 3: Elementary and middle schoolers who want in-person instruction five days a week may do so beginning Oct. 5 while high schoolers remain on hybrid schedule.
The fourth phases would allow all students who want in-person classes to return to brick-and-mortar buildings five days a week. The district said the date for such a move has not yet been determined.
