Hello, Wicomico school families. This is Donna Hanlin, Superintendent of Schools, with some important information from the October 13th Board of Education meeting regarding the planned schedule for all grade levels eventually returning to school.
Prekindergarten will begin in-person instruction next week, every day except Wednesday. The week of October 26th, Kindergarten students and some students receiving Special Education services will begin hybrid learning, with students divided into one of two groups for instruction in school two days a week and learning online the other three days. Hybrid learning will allow for recommended physical distancing in classrooms and on buses.
Grades 1 and 2 will return the week of November 9th. The other grades will follow with hybrid learning, and we wanted you to know what is planned.
Several weeks before a grade level would return to the classroom on a hybrid schedule, parents and guardians will have the opportunity to choose for the student to participate in hybrid learning or to continue with all virtual learning, and to let us know if a student doing hybrid learning would use school transportation.
The complete return-to-school schedule that was shared during today’s Board meeting is posted in this link. Please review the schedule so you know when the student or students in your family would be likely to return, but please be aware that the schedule is subject to change based on health metrics and other factors. We continue to communicate and collaborate regularly with the Wicomico County Health Department.
Thank you for reviewing the return-to-school schedule and for continuing to support your student with virtual learning.
