Hybrid Plus

October 18, 2020

Dear Families,

Hope you are enjoying the weekend. On Wednesday night, the Board supported my recommendation to move to a "hybrid plus" model. Hybrid Plus means that we will work toward more synchronous classes 6-12. For PK-5, it means where we have the space available, we will bring students back to five day a week instruction. This is different from one classroom to another and each principal will be determining how many students can safely fit in each classroom. We are also exploring other ways to provide five day a week instruction. For example, at the moment, we are working with Wolfe's Neck Farm to provide additional instruction for those wanting five day a week instruction in the elementary grades. 

As we evolve, we will continue to explore creative ideas, remain adaptable to ever changing needs, and focused on what is best for our students. Thank you for recognizing our efforts toward continuous improvement since going remote on March 16th. We appreciate your support in partnering with us during these pandemic times!

With much gratitude,
Dr. Becky Foley
RSU5 Superintendent
