MPSD Annouced Its Return To School Plan For August
Updated: Jul 3
In Meridian, the Meridian Public-School District has announced its official plan for students and staff to return to school in the fall.
On Tuesday, June 30th, the Meridian Public-School District’s administration team presented the “Returning, Re-Imagining, and Revamping” plan to the school board.
The plan is to utilize a Hybrid model once students return to the classroom on Monday, August 10.
The hybrid schedule for elementary students indicates Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday as the days they will have in-person learning, and for students in 6th through 12th grade, they will attend school 2 days a week for face-to-face instruction and participate in virtual learning 3 days a week. students at each middle school and high school will be grouped into an “A” or “B” group.
“Group A” will attend school on Monday and Thursday “Group B” will attend school on Tuesday and Friday.
Wednesday is the designated day that virtual learning will take place for elementary, middle, and high school students. Teachers will be on campus at that time instructing via Zoom and Google Classroom.
“Every student, pre-k through 12th grade is going to have a technology device available to them at the beginning of the school year, in developing the pan, we know that there’s been a lot of stress on parents and things like that during this time, but you know—one of the things that we’re doing to kind of ease some of that stress on them, is the district is actually providing school supplies this year for all students. So, parents will not be required to purchase school supplies,” said Matthew Davis.
However, this plan is subject to change.
“Again, this is a plan we’re going to review monthly and we’re going to revise it as necessary, you know, if and when new data becomes available from the CDC,” said Davis.
The Meridian Public-School District is also offering a virtual-only learning option for parents who are not comfortable with the Hybrid model planned for the 2020 to 2021 school year.
