The Hutchinson Middle and High School will be transitioning from the hybrid learning model to the in-person learning model starting on Tuesday, October 27. On Monday, October 26, high school and middle school students will not have school, as this day will be designated as a professional development day for secondary staff to prepare for the full return of students on Tuesday. For elementary staff and students, Monday, October 26 will be a regular school day.
We will continue to closely monitor the county level COVID-19 case rates and the implementation of our safety plan. The vast majority of the safeguards used in the hybrid learning model will remain as we transition to in-person learning in our secondary schools. Our first priority continues to be keeping our students and staff safe and healthy.
The District is hopeful that this transition to in-person is long-term; however, if local COVID-19 conditions worsen, we may be forced to return to a hybrid or a distant learning educational model. It is critical to screen your children before they leave for school each day and if they are exhibiting symptoms, please keep them home.
Please continue your efforts in supporting social distancing, mask wearing, and hand washing. These simple strategies have made a difference in getting our students back in school. The District appreciates your support and partnership.
