Return to Hybrid In-Person Learning Criteria
It is the goal of the District to return to hybrid in-person learning. Central to doing so is maintaining the health and safety of all students and staff. The CDC Metrics on Indicators and Thresholds for Risk of Introduction and Transmission of COVID in Schools is a primary tool guiding our decision on when to bring students back into the building for classes. This tool tracks three core indicators: 1) Number of new cases per 100,000 persons within the last 14-days; 2) Percentage of COVID-19 tests that are positive during the last 14-days; and 3) Ability of the school to implement five key mitigation strategies.
When we have an overall rating of moderate level of risk or better in the core indicators, the District will resume hybrid in-person learning. While all three indicators are important, students will return to hybrid in-person learning when the composite percentage (14-day rolling average) of positive cases of zip codes within the district’s boundaries remains under 8% for two consecutive Friday’s. The tracking period begins Friday, October 30, 2020.

Hybrid In-Person Schedule
Hybrid In-Person students attend LP classes in person on the following days:
- Red Day (M & W) -- In-person learning for students with the last names A through Limberg.
- Green Day (T & Th) -- In-person learning for students with the last names Link through Z.
On their remote days, hybrid in-person students will attend all classes remotely. All hybrid in-person students attend Friday classes remotely.
Remote Learning students attend LP classes Monday through Friday online from 7:45 am to 12:06 pm.
Goals, Life-Skills, Transitions, Oasis, & Pride programs will attend in-person Monday through Thursday and remote on Friday.
Teachers will continue utilizing Edgenuity as a resource for supplementing their lessons. With the transition to synchronous learning, there will be some time needed for students to catch up on their missing Edgenuity lessons and for teachers to readjust their curriculum sequence based on teaching all students five-days per week. Pacing of the curriculum and student workload will still be considered under the unique circumstances of the pandemic.
Guiding Principles for Planning:
1. Maintain the health and safety of all students and staff;
2. Provide meaningful and engaging learning experiences for all students;
3. Address the social-emotional needs of all students;
4. Provide clarity, consistency, and stability for all students and staff; and
5. Provide ongoing professional development for staff to address the learning needs unique to the time.
