During a YouTube Live presentation on March 2, Superintendent Morcease Beasley announced the plan of return.

Pre-kindergarten through fifth-grade students will return to the classroom on a hybrid schedule from April 12 to April 22. Students will be divided into two groups — A and B. For two weeks, the groups will rotate between in-class and virtual instruction.

All parents will have a choice to allow their children to return to the school building or continue with virtual learning.

Starting on April 26 through the end of the school year on May 25, pre-K through fifth-grade students who opted to return to school will begin attending class Monday-Friday.

Students in grades six-12 will remain virtual for now with the exception of those in self-contained classrooms.

Beasley said teachers will use a simultaneous learning model to teach both virtual and in-person students.

To prepare for students’ return, all district personnel and school staff for grades pre-K through fifth will return to the building starting on March 22 to receive safety training.
