Principal's Message to Hybrid Learning Students
I hope that you and your family are well and safe. Because of our safety protocols and declining COVID rates, I am excited to announce our school will be reopening the week of April 26th. I know this has been a challenging year for everyone, and I am happy that we are taking this next step of opening our school to students again.
In the last few weeks families have selected between two options: hybrid, where students come to school two or three days per week and learn at home the other days, and online, where students learn at home online as we have been doing all year.
Please read the information in this letter carefully, so you will understand the schedule and the expectations for returning to school
Our school will reopen the week of April 26th with a staggered schedule as follows:
Monday, April 26-- Pupil Free Day-- All students will learn at home,
Tuesday, April 27-- Only 9th grade students in hybrid program will attend, all other students learn from home online
Wednesday, April 28-- All students learn online at home
Thursday, April 29-- All hybrid students in cohort H attend school (grades 9, 12, and Roughan and Paniagua’s advisories. All other students learn at home
Friday, April 30-- All hybrid students in cohort L attend school (grades 10, 11), all other students learn at home.

Switching Learning Programs
Our goal is to create a safe environment for learning, so we have created cohorts of students to limit COVID-19 transmission. As a result, students will not be able to switch back and forth between learning programs. If you would like to make changes to your students learning program -- from Fully Online to Hybrid or from Hybrid to Fully Online, please note the following:
- Hybrid to Fully Online: This change can be made at any time, at the end of a school day. Please notify the office if you wish to make this change. If you make this change, you cannot come back to Hybrid until the indicated dates below.
- Fully Online to Hybrid: This change can only be made at two times in the next 7 weeks (May 6, May 20). Please notify the office if you wish to make this change.
If you have questions or would like to change your selection, please contact our office at (213) 480-4600.
