Beginning February 22, ALL MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS (Grades 6-8) and HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IN GRADES 9 AND 12 will transition to either hybrid learning at school or continue in distance learning from home. HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IN GRADES 10 AND 11 will join their classmates on March 8. A complete timeline for the Grades 6-12 transition is included at the end of this document.
Both the Middle School and High School will return to hybrid learning at 50 percent capacity, with students attending class in-person two days per week and students learning from home two days per week. Wednesdays will remain a Flex Day at the Middle School and Student Feedback Day at the High School.
As the Middle School and High School return for hybrid learning, students and families have the opportunity to change their selection of educational delivery models. For example, if the previous choice was hybrid learning, students/families can now select to stay in distance learning. If students previously selected distance learning and now want to return to school for hybrid learning, they can do so. PLEASE NOTE: This change will be in place for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year.
IF STUDENTS/FAMILIES DON’T WISH TO MAKE A CHANGE to the learning model previously selected, NO ACTION IS REQUIRED. Please note the transition calendar below for key dates.
If students/families don’t remember which learning model was previously selected, they can:
- Find it on the front page of the Powerschool Parent Portal
- Contact the student’s Advisory Teacher, Dean, or Counselor by email
- Call the School Office (MS: 952-928-6300 / HS 952-928-6100)
To make a change or confirm the learning model selection for your student(s), please complete a CHANGE FORM (links below), one form per student. The deadline to complete the Change Form is Sunday, February 7, 2021.
