This Thursday, November 5, students in grades 4 and 5 will begin the Hybrid model as scheduled. Next Monday, November 9, we will also welcome sixth grade students back to our middle schools.

In August, the division adjusted the school calendar to include Tuesday, November 3, as a regular school day. As November 3 is also Election Day, the division will enact a one-hour delay for the Hybrid Model to reduce the possibility of traffic and congestion near polling locations during the early morning hours. Student drop-off and bus routes will run one hour later than normal and Hybrid Model students learning from home on Tuesdays should login for their morning meetings one hour later than normal.
