In order to provide students an opportunity to learn new safety protocols in a smaller setting, the Hall County School District will operate under a hybrid schedule for the first two weeks of school. This slow, controlled start allows for a time of adjustment as we transition into a year that will differ greatly from those in years past. Additionally, this plan provides immediate access to students, to assess their current needs and begin addressing them.
For students following the in-person instructional model:
Students whose last names begin with the letters A-K will attend school on Monday, August 24 and Wednesday, August 26. Students whose last names begin with the letters L-Z will attend school on Tuesday, August 25 and Thursday, August 27. All students will attend on Friday, August 28. Families with last names in two groups should contact their principals immediately to request a common schedule for families.
This hybrid schedule will be repeated the following week, August 31 through September 4, for all students who have selected the in-person instructional model (Please see the calendar outlining the first two weeks of school).
Having the entire student body attend school in person on Fridays will provide students and staff an opportunity to put into practice safety procedures at full capacity and gain an understanding of how the school day will flow throughout the year.
During the two-week hybrid period, students following the in-person instructional model will participate in blended learning on the two days per week they are not scheduled to be in the building. They will access lessons through the district’s digital learning management system (CANVAS).
