Comprehensive Hybrid Learning Document

As families review learning options for the remainder of the school year, the Bridge to Normalized Instruction: Hybrid Instructional Model resource document summarizes all major aspects of the school system's planned transition to hybrid in-person and concurrent virtual instruction that begins on March 1, as the first stage of a gradual return to normalized instruction. The document serves as a reference for families and staff on all aspects of HCPSS' preparations, including: 

  • Instructional components, including hybrid and virtual options, timeline, daily schedules and professional development
  • Details on student meals and transportation, including a revised meal pickup schedule
  • School and office components, including building modifications, HVAC adjustments and cleaning protocols
  • Health and safety provisions, including PPE, social distancing, staff and student screening, as well as protocols during and following instances of confirmed or suspected infection

As a reminder, families now have until 5 p.m. on Wednesday, February 10, 2021 to complete the commitment survey. 

Fall Athletics to Begin February 13

The start of the 2020-2021 fall athletics season will begin on February 13, 2021 as previously scheduled, with tryouts and conditioning building up to the first scheduled contests on March 5. All students, regardless of their decision for in-person or virtual instruction, may participate in in-person athletics. Schools and coaches will be providing additional information to families and students to prepare for the start of the fall athletics season.

Opportunities for additional in-person extracurricular activities beyond athletics will gradually begin to be offered and families can expect to hear more from the school as those activities progress.

Additional information on athletics may be found on the HCPSS Help Site, which will be updated as more information becomes available.
