Learning Mode

The Hilliard School District is operating in Hybrid Learning.

Before each school day, we are asking every family to do a home health assessment. You should first take their temperature. If it’s above 100.4, you need to keep the student home. You should also check for COVID-19 Symptoms, follow the guidelines for keeping your student home with symptoms, and contact your health care provider if you have any symptoms.

On their in school Hybrid days, students will follow their regular bell schedule. On days they are home, they will work on assignments in Canvas at their own pace.

Meals will still be provided to students at home during the 2020-2021 school year. Breakfast and Lunch will cover days when students are learning from home for the hybrid, e-learning, and Online Academy modes of instruction. All students are eligible. Students who are eligible for free or reduced-priced meals will receive breakfast and lunch free of charge; all other students who might be interested will be charged the standard price for meals.  View details on how our families can pick up meals.

Back to School Top Ten Tips

With the pandemic-impacted start to the 2020/21 school year, we know many students and parents will have questions about what will be happening in Hybrid or All-In Learning Modes.  Be assured we are following guidelines from county, state, and federal health experts, and the Franklin County Department has approved the Hilliard School plans of Health.

Our plans call for schedules, seating arrangements, lesson planning, and other things to be vastly different from what was customary before the coronavirus pandemic forced most schools around the country (and the world) to close.

We hope you take a minute to watch these videos with your student and discuss any concerns.

Superintendent Updates

Superintendent, John Marschhausen on July 7th, shared the Hilliard City School District’s Restart Plan with our staff and community. This plan represents months of work by a variety of teams; all focused on preparing for the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year.

The plan is intended to provide an overview of the three educational delivery scenarios and a fully online option that we are prepared for as a district:

  • All-In Plan: Fully in-person education
  • Hybrid Plan: A combination of in-person and online education
  • eLearning 2.0: Online education
  • Online Academy: Fully online education

Families will have the choice of enrolling their student in the Online Academy OR keeping their student in whichever plan Hilliard Schools is operating under.  Parents will not get a choice between all in, or hybrid.

The plan also outlines the health and safety measures that will be put in place to deliver in-person learning.
