High School Hybrid Return Framework

Safety & Logistics Focus

Students feeling ill/showing symptoms

  • Do not attend school if you or anyone in your home is ill or showing symptoms.
  • If a student has concerns about their health while at school, he/she should ask to see Mrs. Phillips in the nurse’s office.

Prior to returning to school

  • Students must have completed their COVID self-check by 10/28.
  • Students who do not have a self-cert form must sign a visitor self certification form upon arrival that is good for one day
  • Do not attend school in person if you or anyone at your home is experiencing any symptoms of COVID19. 
  • Masks must be worn at all times
  • Please sanitize your hands when entering the building.  Hand sanitizing stations are available throughout the building.

Entering the building

  • Masks must be worn at all times
  • Please sanitize your hands when entering the building.  Hand sanitizing stations are available throughout the building.
  • Student parking will only be available in the square by the tennis courts & the spaces on the East side of the football field.  Parking on the hill and in the main parking lot in front of the building will not be available to students.
  • Students will enter through doors as they are assigned based on how they travel to school:
    • Bus riders enter through door E3 (cafeteria doors)
    • Drivers enter through door N3 (Health room doors)
    • Drop-offs enter through door E2 (main doors)
    • Students should proceed directly to their first-hour classroom unless they have breakfast to pick up from the cafeteria.

Hallway Mobilization

  • The hallways will be divided in half.
  • Students and Staff will walk on the right side of the hallway.
  • If a student or staff member needs to enter a room on the left side of the hallway, they need to wait until there is a safe gap to cross traffic, then they can cross to the room.
  • Students and staff will wear a mask while in the hallways.

Stairway Designations

Stairways will have directional designations.  Students and staff should follow the directions indicated for each stairway in the building.

Stairway Designations

  • Students should move quickly through the hallways to their next destination. 
  • Please do not cluster in the hallways; move to your next class and take your seat once you arrive.
  • Signage will help direct traffic and provide general guidance.  Please make sure to always follow the directional signs for hallways and stairways.

Clean up before and after class

Staff will clean desks after each class period dismisses.  

Lockers

Students will not have lockers.  Plan to use your backpack throughout the day.

Masks

  • Students are expected to have their masks on at all times.  Students may take their masks off outside as long as they are 6ft apart.
  • Students and staff may pull masks down quickly for a drink of water but they must be promptly returned to the appropriate position.

Bathrooms

  • Students may use the bathroom during passing periods or during class time, but we want to limit it as much as possible to keep the crowds down. 
  • (1) Blue and (2) Teal hallway bathrooms, the bathroom by the (3) library, and the (4) south cafeteria bathroom will be the only bathrooms available to students.  
  • Bathrooms will be limited to half capacity.  Bathroom capacity will be indicated via signage on each bathroom.
  • Bathrooms will be cleaned during the first 5 minutes of each period so will be inaccessible.

Leaving the school

At the end of the school day, students need to promptly go to their vehicle, bus, or ride with their masks on while maintaining social distancing as best as possible.   Students can exit any door that is not alarmed.

Water Bottles

Only bottle fillers will be available; students will not be able to use drinking fountains (they have been disabled). Students will be able to bring in their own water bottles to fill them up as needed.

Breakfast & Lunch

  • Breakfast for eligible students will be provided by our food services department.
  • Lunch options will be grab and go at the end of the day.
  • At the three different exits, there will be tables with bags for lunches 
  • No food deliveries (Doordash, grubhub, Jimmy Johns, pizza, etc.) will be allowed at this time.  Delivery drivers will be turned away at the door.
  • Students that bring snacks from home will be required to eat them in designated areas in the cafeteria during passing period.

Technology

  • Students are expected to bring their charged Chromebook every day.
  • All students must have a pair of headphones compatible with their Chromebook.

Attendance

  • Attendance will be taken daily in Infinite Campus.  Remote students will use the IC self-check process we are using now.  In-person students will be counted based on their in-person attendance.
  • Attendance will be marked for every school day (both in-person and e-learning).  Students MUST check in via Infinite Campus for each class even during asynchronous learning activities. 

Learning Time & Workload -Hybrid and All-Remote Students

  • Students will be expected to engage in daily learning experiences for each of their classes regardless of their schedule designation. 
  • Regardless of their schedule designation, students should still plan to complete both synchronous and asynchronous learning activities.
  • Students can expect to complete approximately 1-1.5 hours of work per class (including the time spent in the class itself).  
  • Similar to the regular school year, students may be required to complete homework beyond the scheduled class periods.
  • Teachers are planning lessons and activities with the extraordinary circumstances we are currently living in in mind.  If you are having difficulty completing your assignments in a timely manner, please work with your teacher.

In-Person and E-learning Work Expectations

Technology Resources

  • All students will be asked to bring headphones and charged chromebooks daily
  • Limited supply of headphones available for students who need them

Attendance

  • Attendance will continue to be taken on a daily basis.
    • In-person attendance will be taken by teachers on a daily basis.
    • Remote students will use the Infinite Campus self-check process we are using now.  Attendance will be marked for every school day (both in-person and e-learning).
  • Students attending remotely should check in every period via Infinite Campus.  In addition to their Infinite Campus check-in, students must engage in synchronous activities in order to be counted present.
  • Staff should continue monitoring for student engagement (especially of remote students) in addition to attendance.  If you notice issues and do not get a response when you reach out, please continue to pass student names on to administration.

Instructional Guidelines

  • Hybrid A students will be in-person 2x per week (Monday/Wednesday)
  • Hybrid B students will be in-person 2x per week (Tuesday/Thursday)
  • Remote students must have at least 2x live interactions during the time their course meets per week
  • All students must have learning activities tied to their course of study daily
    • Does not have to be an assignment that is turned in
  • Fridays are asynchronous district-wide; teachers can host live sessions at their discretion
  • Students with a 4-day designation will attend class every day but may be pulled out for services.  Special Education staff will work with teachers to make sure the pull-out schedule made sense.

Student Expectations

  • Students will be expected to engage in daily learning experiences for each of their classes. 
  • Students must check in via Infinite Campus every period on remote days (even if asynchronous)
  • Students can expect to complete approximately 1-1.5 hours (which includes the 38 minutes of class time) of work per class.   
  • Students are expected to take ownership of their learning.  Students should be proactive regarding questions about their Canvas pages, Google Meets, attendance, and office hours.  Do not wait for your teachers to contact you.
  • Students are students first and should prioritize learning activities, both synchronous and asynchronous.

Teacher Expectations

  • Teachers will provide learning activities for all students on a daily basis regardless of their schedule designation.
  • Teachers will provide meaningful feedback for all students regardless of their schedule designation.
  • Teachers will facilitate live interactions for remote learners at least 2x a week but are encouraged to do so as often as the instructional design allows.  Live interactions include but are not limited to:
    • Live teacher instruction 
    • Google Meet
    • Peer-peer interactions during the course period
  • Teachers will sync their Canvas and Infinite Campus gradebooks at least once per week
  • Teachers should plan lessons and work with consideration for the extraordinary circumstances we are currently living in.

Teacher Availability

Staff should prioritize office hours with students when time is allotted in the afternoon

Sample Instructional Approaches (Not an exhaustive list)

Upon our return to school, staff will implement various models that support their instructional goals.  These models are flexible, and instructional goals should, as always, drive the decisions teachers make about which to implement when.  The following models have been discussed and serve as examples of what instruction could look like for students once school resumes in a hybrid parallel setting.

Sample Instructional Approaches (Not an exhaustive list)

  • New content is taught asynchronously via video lessons
  • 2 days per week (1 A day and 1 B day, for example) are devoted to live online lessons
    • Live-streamed small group teaching
    • Google Meets with students
      • Can put students in class on single web-cam in room
      • Can have students in classroom engage via chromebooks and headphones

True Live-streaming

  • New content can be taught whenever
  • You are literally livestreaming what is happening in your classroom 
  • All students not physically present attend via livestream
  • All students have 4 days of live instruction whether in-person or virtually
  • Instruction in this format is best reserved to direct instruction tasks like note-taking or lecture

True Live-streaming

  • Students are given a schedule for the week 
    • Schedule includes all assignments and learning tasks
    • Learning tasks are designed to be completed without teacher assistance
    • Week culminates in a demonstration of learning (quiz, test, project, large assignment, etc.)
  • Students’ roles are to reflect on their own needs and complete the tasks and attend seminars they most need
    • Not as much flexibility in attendance; some may be in physical attendance that don’t feel they need a seminar
  • Conducting this method effectively would mean livestreaming seminars
    • Remote students can choose to attend
    • In-person students are in attendance, but may choose to work on other items for the course
