Fully In Person Schedule for the Middle School: What to Expect

April 9, 2021 2:34 pm

Starting 4/26 (Monday after April break), students will be able to come into school for classes 5 days a week. 

Here’s what to expect and some answers to frequently asked questions:

  • The schedule:  This will stay largely the same with a few key differences: 
  • Wednesdays: There will be classes on Wednesdays; they will not be asynchronous.  Wednesday will be a shortened version of our current schedule. All Wednesdays will be a 12:25 early release schedule.
  • Advisory: The timing of advisory will be a little different. 
  • For students that remain remote or students that come to school in person for their hybrid days, any days at home, they will log on to their Zoom classes as they have been.
  • For the most part, students will continue to be having class in their advisory classroom (along with their partner advisory) with teachers rotating to their classrooms.
  • There will be at least 3 foot spacing in the classroom (or more depending upon what percent of the class stays remote) and 6 foot spacing at lunch. Lunch will take place in the cafeteria, auditorium, and outdoors under tents. All students will have some opportunities for outdoor lunches two days/week and indoors two days/week.
  • You may change your child’s status at any time. Please just email Federico Pereyra to change your child’s status and await a response, especially if your child is switching from remote to in-person (hybrid or 5 days) so we can be certain they have seat assignments in the classroom and at lunch. 
  • We will continue to offer movement breaks and outdoor mask breaks throughout the day. We’ll have some outdoor time during lunch and occasionally during advisory. We aren’t having recess this year as we’re trying to keep groups from mixing, especially in an unstructured way like recess.
