Important Hybrid Information
Hello Alice Ott Families! Please read this whether your student is attending school in person, or if you have chosen for your student to continue learning from home.
We have been working hard this week to prepare for our students who are returning to school in person next week! This change to our hybrid model has many details that you need to know. This email will hopefully cover almost all of your questions and prepare you for what is ahead.
NEW SCHEDULE FOR ALL STUDENTS
The first order of business is to make sure all students and parents know the new class schedule. The times have changed! Our new schedule begins at 10:00am. Periods 1 and 5 begin at 10:00am. Periods 2 and 4 begin at 11:00am. Periods 3 and 7 begin at 12:00pm. Period 4 and 8 begin at 1:00pm. School is out at 2:00pm. On Friday, homeroom is the only class students have. It will begin at 8:30am just as it has all year. (Homeroom will only be on Fridays.) Click here for a printable version of the schedule.
LUNCH PICK UP TIME CHANGE
For students who are at home and are used to coming to school between 12:00pm and 1:00pm to pick up lunch, there is a new time to come pick up meals. Meals will be available from 8:30am-9:00am for students who are continuing to work from home, or on days hybrid students are scheduled to work from home. Click here for the full schedule.
FOOD DURING SCHOOL
Students who are at school will be provided a snack during their elective, PE, ELD, or health class. At the end of the school day, they will be able to take lunch home. The school will provide two days of meals for each student to take home.
Monday, April 19th and Tuesday, April 20th will be the first days in school for 6th and 7th grade students. All 8th grade students will remain online for those two days. (Remember, the first class begins at 10:00am!) Wednesday, April 21st and Thursday, April 22nd will be the first days for 8th graders.
The district has divided the students in half based on their home address. If your house address ends in an odd number, your student will attend school on Monday and Wednesday. (They will go to class online Tuesday and Thursday.) If your house address ends in an even number, your student will attend school on Tuesday and Thursday. (They will go to class online Monday and Wednesday.) You can find this cohort information in student vue and parent vue. If you look down the menu on the left side, you can click on the label “student information.” There is a designation for which cohort your student is in. Cohort A attends Monday and Wednesday. Cohort B attends Tuesday and Thursday. Cohort C remains participating in online learning.
REQUIRED SYMPTOMS CHECK EVERY DAY AT HOME
The state requires that middle school students are checked at home each morning by an adult to see if they have any symptoms that might indicate a child has the COVID virus. Click here for the 3 questions you should ask your student every morning.
