My kid's school district is offering 3 programs HYBRID school: The hybrid model means students spend time learning at school Students are assigned to a group and each group rotates 2-days at school and 3-days learning at home. When at school, learning will be similar to a traditional school day. 7 hours a day including lunch & recess. VIRTUAL school: Students attending the Online Academy will not attend school on campus. Similar to a regular school day, students will have specific class times. PART Time : students attending part-time school shall attend school from 8 am to 12pm. All 5 days, traditional school day. The problem is this rule apply for entire year. We can't switch to another if situation improves due to COVID-19. Some districts are offering semester basis to switch from hybrid to virtual. Vice versa. My child is in elementary school. I'm willing for virtual schooling only. I'm skeptical about sending kid to school where we can't avoid people contact or kids playing together, in lunch breaks. What's the best possible solution? Can I request district to switch to traditional school in case situation improves? If there are less cases and herd immunity is achieved.
