  • Grades 6-12 will begin hybrid instruction the week of April 19 
    • All middle and high school cohorts will have in-person instruction in afternoon groups 
    • In-person learning meets the requirements of Gov. Brown’s recent executive order allowing professional development, building preparation and critical planning time

    • In-person learning for grades 6-12 will take place in afternoons
    • In most cases, students will be in-person twice a week for 2.5 hours 
    • Middle and high school schedules allow for continuation of learning and applied learning activities 
    • Students will have opportunities to interact with peers in small, physically distanced groups 
    • Hybrid does not require teacher changes (exception of teachers who are on leave)

  • Health and Safety
    • HEPA Air Purifiers will be installed in every room or space where students are designated to meet with educators
