Hybrid Learning for Semester 2

Hybrid Learning for Semester 2
Posted on 01/12/2021
Welcome to 2021:  A Student Guide to Hybrid and Fully Virtual Learning During Semester 2

Hello Terrors, We know you have been getting a lot of information about next Tuesday’s return, and you probably have questions. We felt it was important to share some information for you in the form of a Frequently Asked Questions documents in hopes of answering any questions in one easy guide.

What does school look like in the second semester?
Whether you are AA/ BB or Fully Virtual, the bell schedule will be the same as it was first semester.  See the bell schedule below. Please note, your second-semester classes may be different from your first semester classes.
  • All students should be on time, either in-person, or from home, at the start of their scheduled class. For example, if I am an AA student with a 4th period class, I need to be in my classroom no later than 9:25am at West, and I will be joined by BB and Fully Virtual students, who will be signing in online from home.
  • We begin the day with student support time (SST), where teachers will be available to help you with questions. Morning SST will be used primarily for students who are virtual on that given day. Afternoon SST will be an option for students who are in-person using a Flexi-Sched scheduling software. Your Homeroom teacher will go over this next week. Virtual students will also be supported during this time as much as possible.
  • The expectation on Wednesday is for students to check into Infinite Campus to verify their attendance. Students should be doing coursework independently on Wednesday mornings while teachers are in training. Teachers are available on Wednesday afternoons for support.

If I am in-person, when do I need to be in school?
On your in-person day for your cohort, a traditional day will run from 9:25-2:40pm with online student support time (SST) before school and in-person SST available after school, if they sign up for in-person SST or are assigned that time in a class they are failing.

Arrival Times: You should be in school no later than your first academic period on in-person days. The earliest students can arrive is 7:45am, but we encourage you to arrive at the start of your first academic class whenever possible.  Students who arrive at 7:45am must report to the commons where they will be assigned a desk.

4th Hour & 8th Hour Exceptions: You do not have to be in school 4th period if you have lunch, flexible release, or study hall until your period 3 class. If you do report to school, you should go to your assigned room to be supervised by a teacher and work on schoolwork. Likewise, if you have 8th period flexible release or study hall, you do not need to be at school until your period 7 class, but if you report to school, you should go to your assigned room to be supervised by a teacher and work on schoolwork.

End of Day Exceptions: If you end the day (Period 1 or Period 5) with a lunch, flexible release, or study hall, you may leave campus and continue your studies online at home, unless you need to attend in-person SST, in which case, we ask that you report to your assigned room to be supervised by a teacher and work on schoolwork.  

Thank you for helping us minimize coming and going throughout the school day to keep everyone as safe as possible. 

What about food?
This year, breakfast and lunch will be free for all students.

Students will eat lunch in their Homeroom, quickly, courteously, and with as little mask-off time as possible. Lunch needs to be ordered in Homeroom on the last day of the week starting the 15th. There will be a few options for lunch.

Breakfast can be picked up upon entry to the school. Students grab breakfast, go directly to class, eat quickly, courteously, and with as little mask-off time as possible. Students will be required to clean up after themselves.  


Can I get food on days when I am virtual or if I’m fully virtual?

Yes. Chartwells will continue pick-up service for food on Wednesday.  When you go to pick up your food, you simply need to tell our Chartwells personnel if you are virtual three days a week or five days a week and they will give you your food.


Lockers
We will not use our academic lockers when we return to school. We will re-evaluate this as the semester progresses. Please use your backpack, and bring your jacket with you to class. Academic specific lockers may still be available in areas like technical education.


Do I Have to Attend Homeroom?
Yes. After a quick opportunity to eat food in Homeroom, we may have other important information to share some days. Being able to connect with a teacher daily is important.  Students should be on the Google Meet call with their Homeroom even on virtual days for these important announcements.
