Families of elementary students soon will have two choices for learning:
- Hybrid learning
- Continued full remote learning
What you need to do
On Friday, Sept. 18, you will receive via email a form to indicate your choice. The form must be completed by Monday, Sept. 21. If you do not complete the form, your child’s school will plan for your child to return following the hybrid schedule.
There is flexibility in the choice you make. If you choose to have your child attend the hybrid schedule, you may change your mind at any time to move to remote. Additionally, if you choose to have your child start in remote, you can move to the hybrid schedule. Please contact your principal about changes.
*If Clark County remains in moderate COVID-19 activity, hybrid schedules for elementary students will begin on Sept. 29. If the activity level increases above 75 cases per 100,000 before Sept. 29, the three-week monitoring cycle will restart.
Middle and high school students will continue remote learning once elementary students begin hybrid learning. Grades 6-12 schedules for hybrid learning will be shared by the end of September.
Continued remote learning
Please keep in mind that the full-remote choice will include more independent learning than the current remote 2.0 schedule. See more details. If you have questions, please contact your principal.
In-person days for your child(ren)
