Middle School Shifts to In-Person/Hybrid Learning
The next phase of Saint George's re-opening will be with Middle Schoolers. Beginning with 6th graders on Monday, Oct. 5, students will return to campus in a staggered approach. Sixth-grade students may attend classes Monday through Thursday this week as we shift to a Hybrid of in-person and distance learning. (There are no classes on Friday, Oct. 9 for a teacher Professional Development Day.)
The 7th and 8th graders may return for in-person classes on Tuesday, October 6 and Wednesday, October 7, then have a Distance Learning day on Thursday, October 8. Because Middle School classes do not operate solely in a cohort, logistical considerations are involved as students change classes during the day and the 7th and 8th grade students will have some classes (choir, art, etc.) together at times. While we are able to maintain the social distancing and facial covers throughout the day, we must be mindful of the additional interactions that take place. Seventh and 8th grade students will continue to have Distance Learning on 8 period days, which are typically on Mondays, as well as on “Special Schedule” days. Parents should refer to Joelle Neiwert's letter for more details, and additional information from Ryan Peplinski, COVID Coordinator.
