Lynchburg City Schools will begin safely bringing more students back into the school buildings for hybrid instruction before the end of this first nine weeks. See the September 22, 2020 Update for details.
Academics & Instruction Phases
The hybrid model places students into one of two groupings: “Cohort A” and “Cohort B.” Students in Cohort A will attend in-building instruction on Tuesday and Wednesday of each week, with remote learning scheduled for Thursday and Friday. Students in Cohort B will attend in-building instruction on Thursday and Friday, with remote learning scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday. Monday is a remote instructional day for all students. Teachers will provide direct and small group instruction, which will be an integral part of the learning day.
Hybrid Instruction Start Dates:
- Grades PreK-2 - Cohort A: Tuesday, October 6th; Cohort B: Thursday, October 8th
- Grades 3-6 - Cohort A: Tuesday, October 13th; Cohort B: Thursday October 15th
- Grades 7-12 - Cohort A: Tuesday, October 27th; Cohort B: October 29th
Students and staff are required to wear a face covering while in an LCS school building, in another LCS facility, on school-provided transportation, property and/or LCS sponsored event(s).
The Health Mitigation Plan provides information about the many health, safety, and reporting measures we are taking to maintain a safe environment for staff and students.
As we transition, the remote instructional model will remain the same. The teacher of record may change due to staffing needs. Student learning is done away from the LCS classroom 5 days a week. The student will not engage in instruction in the classroom setting. This model requires parents/guardians to be “partners” in their student’s learning. The student learning day will not look like the traditional model where students are live and synchronous with their teacher on a time-bound schedule. The student and parent/guardian will have the choice when to access instruction. LCS teachers will offer a variety of opportunities to engage with students live via technology, through pre-recorded sessions, and other means to make sure student and teacher connections are on-going. LCS teachers will continue to contact parents/guardians throughout the school year.
