Transition to Blended Learning Starts Monday, Oct. 12

Kindergarten and first grade starts blended Oct. 12

On Monday, Oct. 12, we begin to transition to a blended learning scenario in stages, starting with students in kindergarten and first grade who will begin attending school in-person four days a week (M, Tu, Th, F) – unless they have opted into the Distance Learning Academy

Below is a tentative schedule for transitioning grades. The dates assume health and safety conditions are favorable for returning to school in person. 

  • October 12 - Kindergarten, grade 1
  • October 26 - ECSE, pre-K, grades 2 – 3
  • November 9 - Grades 4 – 6
  • December 7 - Grades 7 – 12

Read our plan presented to the board on transitioning to blended learning, and learn more about health and safety at our Reopening page.

Cohort placement info will be mailed week of Oct. 12

Next week we will begin to notify families with students in grades 2 – 6 who have chosen to participate in blended learning of their students’ cohort placements. Students will be placed in either Cohort 1 (M-Tu) or Cohort 2 (Th-F). Families will receive their placement via U.S. mail.

Students placed into Cohort 1 (M-Tu) will attend school in person on Mondays and Tuesdays and will participate in asynchronous learning from home on Thursdays and Fridays. Students placed into Cohort 2 (Th-F) will attend school in person on Thursdays and Fridays and participate in asynchronous learning from home on Mondays and Tuesdays. All students, regardless of cohort placement, will participate in asynchronous learning from home on Wednesdays. 

Please watch your mail next week for this important information.
