Some basic information about Redmond School District’s hybrid reentry plan.
BRINGING STUDENTS BACK TO SCHOOL
Preparation for K-3 Return
As we have previously mentioned, once Redmond School District is able to bring elementary students back on site, students will return to school in a hybrid model for a limited amount of time so that we can teach and practice safety protocols with our students.
- In a hybrid model, half of the students will attend one day and the other half will attend on the following day.
- During hybrid learning, students can expect to be learning each day of the week with assignments, lessons, projects and extension activities happening both in-class and online on days when students are learning from home.
- Schools will reach out to your family with additional information about coming back to school and to notify you of your student’s hybrid schedule and so that you will know which days your student will attend school in person.
After attending in a hybrid model students will attend their school for on-site learning each day.
Grades 4-5 Return
Once we have demonstrated a successful return for K-3 students we will announce our plans to bring students in grades 4-5 back. Grades 4-5 will first attend in a hybrid model so that students can learn health and safety practices before returning to full time on-site.
Grades 6-12 Return
When metrics allow and we have demonstrated a successful elementary return, our students in grades 6-12 will return to school, in a hybrid model as planned and communicated earlier this summer. Schools will communicate hybrid schedules prior to hybrid instruction so that families can appropriately plan. As we come closer to bringing students in grades 6-12 back we will share the details of this plan with families.
Health & Safety Reminder
We want to remind all students, parents and families that the health and safety protocols of mask wearing, social distancing, and cohorts will be in place at all times. Masks and face coverings are currently required statewide for offices and indoor public spaces, which includes Oregon public schools. In addition, face coverings are required in outdoor public spaces when physical distancing is not possible. Children age 5 and up are required to wear a face covering. Students with a disability or medical condition may request accommodation if they are unable to wear a face covering.
For students in grades K-3, Chromebooks and hotspots will remain at home during both CDL and hybrid instruction. Once students return on-site, chromebooks and hotspots will be returned to school.
