In a year full of challenges, one of the biggest challenges has been preparing to bring students back to school for in-person learning. We will postpone the start of hybrid learning, which was scheduled to begin March 1.

While the transition to hybrid in-person learning will start with our youngest learners, we want everyone to be prepared for when it's their turn to go back to school.

Our safety expectations and plan are based on current information from local, state and federal public health agencies. Each layer of protection keeps us safer.
