Elementary students attending in-person classrooms will start the year with Traditional Classroom Learning, four-days per week, and E-Learning one-day per week.
Monday: In-Person Learning
Tuesday: In-Person Learning
All student E-Learning Day
Facilities are deep cleaned and sterilized
Teacher Collaboration & Prep Day
Friday: In-Person Learning
This decision has been made based on the belief that most elementary students learn best with direct instruction in a traditional classroom environment. Knowing that this is not a solution desired by all families, implementing a four-day in-person week with E-Learning one day per week provides teachers the time they will need to create a District E-Learning option for students who are not ready, or able, to return to a classroom environment. Further, we anticipate there will be a need to move to E-Learning quickly by classroom, grade, or building. This model will allow the district to provide continuous and common instruction for students choosing to learn in a classroom or E-Learning environment.
Families should prepare for notice of E-Learning for an extended period similar to weather-related school closings.
This model is being implemented in tandem with increased safety, disinfecting, and distancing procedures and protocols as well as modified building layouts.
Grading will return to a traditional standards-based system for all students.
