The Showalter staff are busy preparing for the return to in-person hybrid teaching starting with 6th grade students who have selected onsite instruction with last names starting A-L (A Group) on Thursday, April 15th and those with last names starting with M-Z (B Group) on Friday the 16th. When we return from the break, the week of April 12-16, students will be working primarily asynchronously on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Students will check in with their homeroom teachers at their regular start time of 9:50 a.m.  Students will have asynchronous work to complete these three days while teachers use this time to prepare their classrooms and receive training and support as they transition to teaching remote and in-person simultaneously.  As noted above, 6th grade students will be onsite Thursday (A Group) and Friday (B Group) that week.  7th and 8th grade students will work synchronously on those days, following the new hybrid learning model with the 11:00 a.m homeroom start.

Students should not arrive on campus prior to 10:45 a.m. All students, remote or in-person, will have 55 minute class periods and 5 minute passing times, with the exception of Wednesdays when they will see all of their teachers for 25 minutes. Their teachers will either be in-building, teaching students in-person while teaching to the students who are remote, or they may have a staff member supervising their classroom while their teacher is teaching from a remote location. Either way, students will be taught by their current teacher.

To help you prepare for the transition to onsite instruction, we have included important information for students and parents to know prior to returning to the building. Please make sure you are reading through the expectations and communicating our expectations to your student prior to returning to in-person learning. The highest priority is to complete the daily health screening on Skyward or on a district provided attestation card, prior to leaving your home.  When on campus, students will be required to wear a mask at all times, and maintain a 6 ft. distance from others as much as possible.

Our safety guidelines and protocols are in place and designed to keep everyone safe and help move us closer to fully returning to in-person learning.  We are excited to see our students soon! 
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Showalter at 206-901-7800.
