Grain Valley Schools announced in a December 4th email to parents that a
decision regarding the return of in-person hybrid learning for middle school and high school students for second semester is expected to be made by the school board prior to the Christmas Holiday break. Second semester begins January 25th.
In the email, the district stated,
“Whether or not any students are at school for their learning is a separate decision that depends on gating criteria, such as school substitute fill rates”.
Parents will continue to have the option to elect 100% virtual instruction for their child. Once a decision is made and communicated for second semester, families will have until the end of the day on January 7th to select the 100% virtual option for their child.
The learning model for elementary and early childhood students will remain full in-person, except for days or weeks 100% virtual is declared by the district due to gating criteria, such as substitute fill rates.
