HYBRID PLAN

Hybrid Plan

In-Person and Online Instruction.

This plan allows for a reduced number of students in the buildings while providing a combination of in-person and online learning. All students in-person 2 days a week. On the alternating weeks, students will attend a 3rd day in-person. (6-feet social distancing)

Students will be placed into A (Last Name beginning A-K) and B (Last Name beginning L-Z) groups based on last name and households. At home days, students will work on online assignments or tasks assigned during the in-person days. 

Hybrid Calendar

Alternating Schedule

This plan includes dividing our students into two groups in order to maintain the health department’s recommended six-feet of social distancing. Each group will receive a minimum of two days per week* in class and will alternate attending in-person on Fridays. On days that students are not in the classroom, they will utilize remote learning.

*This may fluctuate based on when a school or district moves in and out of the hybrid plan or due to non-school days.

The at-home day for students will consist of activities and work assigned by the teacher to continue a student’s progress toward meeting their learning standards. Some of this work may have already been part of the school day but could be completed without direct instruction. This will include a combination of learning activities, such as: ST Math online program, self-guided reading, activities that reinforce in-class work, and writing. At-home work is designed to keep students moving toward their learning targets and will be tailored to the grade level of the student.

Student Meal Options

Meals will still be provided in Hilliard Schools to cover scheduled school days when students are learning from home, during e-learning and hybrid modes and for Online Academy Students.

Pick-Up Details

For families with students in secondary schools, meal pick-up will cover all students in the household.

Meals should be picked up at the building attended by your oldest child. For example, if you have four children in your household, and one of your children attends high school, you will pick up meals for all four children at the high school your oldest child attends.

The number of meals provided will be based on the number of school days in the coming week that students are not in school and the number of students in the household. It could range from 5 days of meals for students in the Online Academy, or if all children are in eLearning mode, to 2 or 3 days of meals if we are in hybrid mode. Note: we are now providing additional weekend meals.

Elementary students in hybrid mode,  who want meals for days they are learning at home will take a bagged breakfast and lunch home with them from school for the following day.

Meals will include all components required by the USDA to meet NSLP and NSLB guidelines. Meals will include a variety of fruit, fresh vegetables, milk, and lunch and breakfast entrees. Lunch entrees may include frozen, fully cooked items like hamburgers or chicken patties that can be reheated at home.

If you have questions regarding meal pick-up, please contact the Food Service Office at 614-527-4209.
