Dear Parents/Guardians,


Last night the Lamphere Board of Education voted in favor of return to in-person learning beginning on November 4th.  We are eager and excited to have students in our classrooms again!  Today we are reaching out to provide some additional information about our instructional model that will include both in-person and remote instruction on a rotating basis. 


For our return to the in-person plan starting on November 4th, there will be two options to choose from.  You will also be able to choose a different option at the end of the semester should your circumstances change.  Please use the Secondary Learning Selection Form link at the bottom of this email.


Option 1: At School and Home (In-Person Hybrid)

Students will be divided into two groups.  On the designated days when a student’s group is LIVE for instruction, they will report in person for all of their classes that day.  On the day when a student’s group status is REMOTE for instruction, they will use their computer to use Zoom in their classes following the daily schedule for that day.  Each classroom will be equipped with a camera and microphone for a real-time broadcast.  Teachers will provide students the Zoom links for their classes as they have all year. Regardless of whether your student is at home or school, they will receive the same instruction at the same time (one group in-person, the other through Zoom).


Option 2: At Home Every Day (Remote Learning)

Students will continue to follow the daily schedule from home remotely each day.  They are expected to report on time to each class period using Zoom video conferencing. Attendance will be taken at the beginning of each class period.


Virtual Learning (Edmentum)

If your student is currently in our virtual learning program through Edmentum, they can either remain in this program or choose one of the two options described above.  


Spacing, Movement, & Social Distancing

For students choosing to return to in-person school, the following will be in place:

  • Masks will be required to be worn by faculty members and students at all times except when eating.

  • Teachers will do their best to maintain 6 feet of social distancing with students.

  • Desks and students will be appropriately distanced in class.

  • Students, faculty, and staff will be required to pass through the hallways on the far right in the same direction to maintain appropriate social distancing.

  • Signage will be in place throughout the building to promote proper social distancing.

  • Desks are arranged to face the same direction.  In the Art and Science rooms, plexiglass dividers will be used on the tables.

  • All rooms are well ventilated.  Doors and windows will be kept open when possible.

  • Arrival and dismissal times will be monitored to encourage social distancing.


Key Points to Remember:

  • Students will continue to meet with their same teachers and classes regardless of what option they choose.

  • Live instruction will continue day-to-day using the same block/class schedule.  There will be a slight change to the start of the school day and times in-between classes.  A schedule will be sent out next week. 

  • One group of students will be present for in-person instruction while all other groups will follow the same schedule and attend live instruction from home through Zoom and Canvas.

  • Students learning from home will continue to log on to their courses according to the daily schedule.


Please complete this Secondary Learning Selection Form by October 19, 2020.


Our teachers have been working hard to deliver the best instruction and services to our students and we will continue to build upon what we have learned as we move forward to this phase of in-person learning.  We want to thank you for your continued support and flexibility.
