10 Feb Pre-K to Grade 5: April 6 Face-to-Face Instruction Five Days a Week
Beginning on April 6, 2021, elementary schools in the Clark County School District will be expanding face-to-face instruction to five days a week in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 5.
Please know that all elementary schools must adhere to all state directives on health and safety protocols. These include limiting the maximum capacity to 75% fire code occupancy of a single space and three feet of social distancing between students.
Due to these regulations, there may be students who will need to remain in full-time distance education until a space becomes available in face-to-face instruction. This will be based on the number of classrooms, the size of the classrooms, and the number of students engaging in face-to-face hybrid instruction. Students in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 3 currently enrolled in Cohort A or B who are attending school for face-to-face instruction two days a week have priority to attend face-to-face instruction five days a week. In addition, students in Grades 4 and 5 who indicated participation in the hybrid instructional model on the hybrid questionnaire in November 2020 also have priority to attend face-to-face instruction five days a week.
If a parent/guardian whose student is not currently participating in the hybrid instructional model would like to request returning to school on April 6, 2021, please contact the school to determine the individual school’s capacity. If a parent/guardian indicated full-time distance education for their Grade 4 or 5 student on the hybrid questionnaire in November 2020, and would like to request returning to school on April 6, 2021, please work with the school regarding processes aligned with the individual school’s capacity. Each school is unique in the number of students served in the hybrid instructional model and schools have varying classroom sizes that may limit the number of students served in an individual classroom.
All elementary schools will continue to provide full-time distance education for the remainder of the school year.
Thank you for your patience and support as we continue to open our schools for our students to promote healthy and safe learning environments.
