Students at West Delaware High School have been in school every day for the past month since the new year started, but they’ll be moving to a hybrid learning plan starting this Monday.
Superintendent Dr. Kristen Rickey:
Since school started, 236 students have been quarantined. Currently, 77 students are either ill or quarantining at the high school – that’s 15-percent of the student body. Rickey says moving to a hybrid plan will help cut down on the need to quarantine because it will give everyone more room to space out in the classroom.
All of West Delaware’s high school students have their own Chromebook with access to Google Classrooms.
And even though classroom learning will look different, West Delaware High School will continue holding after school practices and events, even on remote learning days.
The Independence Community School District also announced on Thursday their plans to move to a hybrid learning plan. It will begin Monday for Independence Junior/Senior High School students only.
