Hybrid start dates for middle and high school students | Aprendizaje híbrido para los estudiantes de las escuelas intermedias y preparatorias

As we approach the final quarter of the 2020-21 school year, we are excited to begin welcoming students in grades 6-12 back into our buildings for hybrid learning.

In hybrid learning, students will continue to have class periods on their cohort days, but they will attend classes at school. That could be on Tuesdays and Thursdays or Wednesdays and Fridays. Students will alternate between in-person learning in our school buildings and applied (independent) learning at home. Mondays will also be at home and will continue to be reserved for additional student support, family engagement and planning.

Students in the EDGE program will continue in remote learning through EDGE.

Starting in quarter four, students in middle and high school will begin returning to school buildings based on their cohort assignment on the following smooth start schedule:

Middle School Hybrid Start Dates

  • April 13 or 14: Grade 6
  • April 15 or 16: Grades 7 & 8

High School Hybrid Start Dates

  • April 13 or 14: Grades 9 & 10
  • April 15 or 16: Grades 11 & 12

In preparation for the launch of hybrid, the last day of quarter 3 has been adjusted to April 7, 2021. Students will not have classes on April 8 or April 9. This change does not apply to EDGE students.

Example cohort schedule for middle & high school students

On in-person learning days, students will participate in class periods at their school building. Periods will be approximately 50 minutes for middle school and 60 minutes for high school. Students will move between classrooms, but will not use lockers.

On applied learning days at home, students apply learning from their in-person lessons and work on assignments independently and on their own schedule. For both middle and high schools, student support on applied learning days will be available.

A medida que nos acercamos al último trimestre del año escolar 2020-21, el distrito les da la bienvenida a los estudiantes de los grados 6 al 12 en los planteles escolares para el aprendizaje híbrido.

En el aprendizaje híbrido, los estudiantes continuarán teniendo períodos de clase en sus días correspondientes a su grupo de asistencia estudiantil, pero asistirán a clases en la escuela. Eso podría ser los martes y jueves o los miércoles y viernes. Los estudiantes alternarán entre el aprendizaje en persona en nuestros planteles escolares y el aprendizaje aplicado en el hogar. Los lunes también serán en casa y se seguirán reservados para apoyo adicional a los estudiantes, participación familiar y planificación.

Los estudiantes del programa EDGE continuarán en aprendizaje remoto a través de EDGE.

A partir del cuarto trimestre, los estudiantes de las escuelas intermedias y preparatorias comenzarán a regresar a los planteles escolares según su asignación de grupo de asistencia estudiantil en el siguiente programa de inicio progresivo:

Fechas de inicio de clases de las escuelas intermedias

  • 13 o 14 de abril: grado 6
  • 15 o 16 de abril: grados 7 y 8

Fechas de inicio de clases de las escuelas preparatorias

  • 13 o 14 de abril: grados 9 y 10
  • 15 o 16 de abril: grados 11 y 12

En preparación para el lanzamiento del aprendizaje híbrido, el último día del tercer trimestre se ha ajustado al 7 de abril de 2021 y los estudiantes no tendrán clases el 8 de abril ni el 9 de abril. Este cambio de horario solo se aplica a los estudiantes en educación integral a distancia. Los estudiantes en el programa EDGE reanudarán el horario normal.

Próximas sesiones familiares informativas

A partir de la semana del 15 de marzo, el distrito organizará una serie de eventos familiares en vivo para grupos de población específicos por medio de Zoom. Durante estos eventos, repasaremos los detalles sobre el aprendizaje híbrido para los estudiantes de secundaria mientras brindamos a las familias la oportunidad de hacer preguntas y prepararse para comenzar el aprendizaje híbrido.

Remote learning

In December, families had the option of switching their child’s learning model to the EDGE online program, which guaranteed fully-online learning for the remainder of the school year. If your family circumstances require your child to remain in remote learning, please contact your school’s principal to discuss the best option for your child.
