Opting into or out of hybrid learning

Families who want to switch from full remote learning to hybrid learning or vice versa should contact their school’s principal. Schools may be able to accommodate changes if space is available.

Maintaining safety

The expansion of in-person learning follows new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Gov. Inlsee permitting reduced physical distance of 3 feet between students in classrooms. Schools must still maintain 6 feet of distance as much as possible in other areas and situations, as well as among adults and adults and students.
