DELPHOS — Due to an increasing number of COVID-19 cases in the Delphos school district, students will be transitioning into a hybrid model of education beginning this week.
According to a posting on the district’s webpage, the district will start the hybrid schedule beginning Tuesday, Oct. 13.
• Grades 9-10 will attend school in person on Mondays, Wednesdays and alternate Fridays (with their first Friday being Oct. 16).
• Grades 11-12 will attend school in person on Tuesdays, Thursdays and alternate Fridays (with their first Friday being Oct. 23).
On days when students are not attending school in person, they will be required to log on to Google Classroom and complete the lesson activity for the day. Teachers will have the lesson activity posted by 10 a.m. Teachers will provide more information to the students at that time.
Delphos schools is in the process of ordering mobile hotspots. It will issue hotspots free to those families that have internet connection issues. A Google form to be sent to all high school students in need of consistent, reliable wifi. They should be available for pickup by the end of the week.
Grab-and-go meals will be available to students learning remotely. Students not in school that day can pick up their lunch from 11 to 11:30 a.m. from the high school. Lunch pick up will be located at the northwest entrance door.
Students on IEPs may have the opportunity to attend more frequently. The intervention specialist will reach out to the parents soon.
“While no hybrid plan can replace in-school learning or adapt to all barriers for teachers, students and parents, I believe that the following plan offers the best opportunity for in-person instruction, remote learning and student and teacher engagements,” said Chad Brinkman, Delphos Jefferson High School principal.
