Hybrid Learning Model for Sept

Hybrid Learning Model for Sept
Posted on 09/02/2020
As you are aware, the school corporation developed a reopening plan for the 2020-2021 school year designed to adapt to the local community health environment as it impacts our schools.  As we have monitored the situation since early August, we have found that we are entering a phase where a significant number of our staff and students have been identified as close contacts to positive cases and as a result our absentee rate is climbing while individuals adhere to the quarantine guidelines.  Therefore, all schools in the Pike County School Corporation will observe eLearning days on Thursday, September 3 and Friday, September 4.   Students will be released at their regular dismissal time today.

When school resumes on Tuesday, September 8th, after the Labor Day weekend, we will be following our Yellow Plan as defined in the reopening plan posted on the school websites and will remain on the Yellow Plan through September 25th.   The Yellow Plan represents a hybrid learning model where students are divided into two groups and attend school on an alternating schedule.  The model can be found on our school website and Facebook pages.   If local conditions warrant an extension or change of plan, you will be notified as soon as the decision is made.  Students have been placed in Group A or Group B based on family groupings and, when possible, additional cohort or grouping information in an effort to minimize the number of contacts encountered during the school day. You will be notified of your child’s group assignment within 24 hours.   At this time, all athletics and school activities will continue as planned.  Visitor access to the buildings will remain at a restricted level.

Please be sure to monitor your email account for additional information throughout the school year.
