• During the board of education meeting on Dec. 17, the administration provided an update on the district’s return to school plan. Below is a summary of the changes we are making for second semester. 

    • We condensed our learning cohorts from four (A, B, C and D) to two (A and B) to increase the number of students who are on campus for in-person instruction. We are also maintaining our R cohort (R stands for remote) and E cohort (E stands for everyday) from first semester.

      • Students who selected the hybrid model have been placed in either the A or B cohort. They will come to school two days per week for in-person instruction, and engage in synchronous learning from home the other three days. 

      • Students who will be remote to start the semester, but have the option of switching to the hybrid model, have been placed in the R cohort and will learn from home five days per week. They have also been assigned to the A or B cohort should they decide to resume in-person instruction during the second half of the school year.

      • Students who have decided to learn from home on a full-time basis for the rest of the school year have also been placed in the R cohort. However, they have not been assigned to the A or B cohort because they told us they do not intend to switch to the hybrid model during second semester.

      • Students with identified academic, social and/or emotional needs who the district will bring on campus for in-person learning up to four days per week have been placed in the E cohort. We will contact the families of these students to discuss classes, schedules, etc.

    • Families that selected remote with the option of switching to hybrid will have one opportunity each month to request a change to in-person instruction. You can learn more about this process by visiting https://d86.hinsdale86.org/Page/2022.

    • While the students in our self-contained programs (i.e., Foundations/HAVEN) will continue to follow their daily schedule from first semester, the inclusion of other students in Group E (E stands for everyday) will be based upon the space that is available in our classrooms. This will depend, in part, on the number of students who selected remote with the option of switching to hybrid who resume in-person instruction during second semester.

    • In order to accommodate federal holidays and an institute day, we will not be utilizing our Wednesday remote schedule the weeks of Jan. 18, Feb. 15 and Feb. 22.

    • Students will be expected to have their camera turned on and their face visible at all times when they are learning from home. With that said, families may request an accommodation for this requirement. You can learn more about the on-camera expectations and accommodations for Zoom by visiting https://d86.hinsdale86.org/Page/2021.

    • All students participating in the hybrid model will eat lunch on campus one day per week (i.e., either Tuesday or Friday). However, similar to the on-screen expectations mentioned in the bullet point above, families may request an accommodation if their student does not want to eat lunch at school. You can learn more about the in-person lunch plan, schedule and accommodations by visiting https://d86.hinsdale86.org/Page/2020.
