SJSD to move to hybrid learning model next week

Posted Oct 06, 2020 1:39 AM

The St. Joseph School District Board of Education voted Monday night to follow the district administration’s recommendation to move to a hybrid learning model beginning Monday, Oct. 12th.

According to a press release from the district, during the past week the district has seen an increase in the number of school staff members who have tested positive for COVID-19 or are quarantined due to a close contact with a positive person. The district says finding substitutes to fill some of the positions has been extremely difficult.

In-person classes will be held Tuesday, Oct. 6, but schools will be closed the remainder of the week – Oct. 7, 8 and 9 in preparation for this transition – this includes students who attend Hillyard Technical Center. No remote learning will take place on those three days for in-person students.

For more information, visit the St. Joseph School District's website.

The administration and Board of Education will re-evaluate the hybrid learning plan at its regularly scheduled meetings on the 4th Monday of the month.
