Planning for Secondary Students 
Based on the new guidance for schools recently issued by the Department of Health, we continue to plan for a safe return of secondary students in a hybrid schedule. We are hopeful for an early second semester return date based on COVID-19 case counts in the community.

 Based on the number of students returning, changes to hybrid schedules may occur.  Students who return to school in a hybrid in-person model will be on campus anywhere from 1-4 days per week, all dependent on the number of students we need to accommodate.  

 In our Jan. 15 message, we asked families to select their child’s instructional model by Jan. 22.  Families have a choice between in-person learning (onsite at least one day per week) or remote (not onsite, full-time continuous distance learning).  


ONSITE BELL SCHEDULES

Junior High 
Aylen, Kalles, Edgemont (11:10 a.m. - 1:50 p.m.)
Ballou, Ferrucci, Glacier View, Stahl (11:15 a.m. - 1:55 p.m.)

High School 
ERHS, PHS, RHS (12:05 - 2:45 p.m.)


SCHEDULE VARIATIONS

Schedule variations may occur based on the number of students returning.  Class size and social distancing requirements will impact our final hybrid schedule as we return students. The number of families selecting hybrid affects the number of schedules available.


Note: Unlike hybrid, the schedule for students choosing to stay in remote learning is not dependent on the number of families who choose this option. 

Four-Cohort Schedule (A, B, C, D)

In this model, all students would be provided with two half-days of onsite instruction once every two weeks. 

Adjustments have been made to the original four-cohort schedule model upon receiving feedback from staff and families. This model allows for in-person experiences throughout six periods (not three as originally shared) in small groups of 15 or less per classroom.

If you selected “Full-time Continuous (Distance) Learning 2.0” based on the original four-cohort schedule and would like to change your selection, please contact your child’s school by 3 p.m. Jan. 27.

Two-Cohort Schedule Model

As we continue to reopen schools and transmission rates decline, secondary students would transition from a four-cohort schedule to a two-cohort schedule model.
