Hybrid Reopening Plan (K-2) Information
The School District of Philadelphia is offering all PreK-2 families the option of remaining 100% digital or transitioning to a mix of in-person and digital remote learning for students (hybrid learning). If a parent selects the hybrid learning option, their child’s schedule will be communicated in mid-November. Students will begin transitioning to hybrid learning the week of November 30, as long as COVID-19 conditions and school readiness efforts signal that it is safe to do so.
The selection period begins on Monday, October 26 and ends at 5 p.m. on Friday, October 30, 2020. Parents can make selection in one of two ways:
By Electronic Form – parents will be able to complete and submit program choice via an electronic form. They will fill out a form for each child in the household.
By Phone – Parents of K-2 students will be able to call the school directly and inform them of their selection. Parents of PreK students can call the Office of Early Childhood Education at 215-400-6087.
Did you know that you can view your child’s assignment grades and attendance at any time from a computer or mobile device? This is more important now than ever with virtual learning. All you need to get started is to create a Parent Portal account.
