Hays CISD parents will start making decisions whether they want their children to continue virtual learning or attend in-person learning in the classroom. The form went live today in Parent Self-Serve.
All students will be required to participate in virtual learning from Sept. 8 to Sept. 25. Parents will be asked if they should be considered for the In-person Virtual Learning Support Program. The option allows for parents to send their children to school in-person during that period, as some students may not be able to participate in a virtual learning environment. More information about the program can be viewed in the COVID-19 response plan.
Parents will then choose virtual learning or in-person learning for the remaining first nine-week grading period between Sept. 28 and Nov. 6. Parents can change their choices for the later periods up until the listed deadlines.
For the second nine-week period (Nov. 9, 2020 to Jan. 29, 2021), parents have until Oct. 30, 2020, if they want to make changes. The deadline for the third nine-week period (Feb. 1, 2021 to April 9, 2021) is Jan. 22, 2021. Lastly, the deadline for the fourth nine-week period (April 12, 2021 to June 15, 2021) is April 2, 2021.
More information about details regarding in-person and virtual instruction can be found in the Hays CISD back to school plan.
