Good Evening Holmes Families,
We plan to continue providing quality online learning for families who choose to have their student(s) remain online and to also provide an Onsite/Online Hybrid model beginning on April 12th. The Onsite portion of the hybrid will provide students with four days of onsite instruction for 5 hours provided by our classroom teachers with an additional 30 minutes of onsite lunch. For the remainder of each school day/week, students in the hybrid model will work independently on lessons provided by their teachers. This “asynchronous learning” will be done both online and offline. As soon as we finalize our Onsite/Online Hybrid model, we will provide you with specific details about your child’s schedule.
Our goal is to continue to provide a safe learning environment throughout the entire day for students and offer additional time beyond the instructional day. Additional time beyond the school day may be provided by staff and not necessarily by your child’s teacher. Your input will be necessary to determine the level of additional opportunities that may be provided.
Based on the number of students who choose the Onsite/Online Hybrid model, Holmes may need to decrease the amount of time students spend on campus in order to protect everyone’s health. We will always maintain the highest possible health and safety conditions. In this case, it may be necessary to move to a 2 days on, 2 days off campus model, for students who are receiving their live instruction through the Onsite/Online Hybrid model.
Students receiving special education services will receive the services outlined in their Individualized Education Plan (IEP) in both the Onsite/Online Hybrid and the Online Only instructional models.
Please finalize your choice by completing this Instructional Model Choice Form indicating your choice for either the Onsite/Online Hybrid or the Online Only model by March 22, 2021. Please complete ONE form PER CHILD, using your child's student ID.
If your response is not received by Monday, March 22, 2021, your child will be assigned to the Online Only model. Families who wish to change their selection during the final weeks of the school year may be accommodated based on the availability of physical space, adhering to health and safety guidelines.
