“On Monday, Sept. 21, students will begin attending Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Wednesdays will be virtual learning days and used for cleaning and disinfecting,” the district stated.

The district credits staff, students and families following safety and health protocols to be able to make this transition.

“Thanks to your diligence, we are able to transition to more in-person learning days for the three weeks from Sept. 21 to Oct. 9. We will make a decision about how to proceed after Oct. 9 on Friday, Oct. 2,” the district stated.

The district also wants to remind families and students that with more students coming together, classrooms will have less space to social distance students. They will still be socially-distanced, but there will be less space between students compared to the hybrid model.

Students utilizing virtual learning will remain on the same schedule of Monday through Friday.
