When classes resume on Monday, the Fairfield School District will return with a hybrid learning schedule.
Superintendent Dr. Laurie Noll says the district is returning to school with the hybrid model they used December 14 through December 18 with students across all grades split into two groups with Trojan students in class all day Monday and Tuesday and Power students in class all day Thursday and Friday. The groups then alternate being onsite from 8:00 a.m. to noon every other Wednesday. Dr. Noll says the split is an effort to reduce how many students are on campus at one time and they’ve tried to keep students from the same household in the same group as much as possible.
All Fairfield students were learning virtually from November 16 through December 11. The district applied for and was approved for a two-week online waiver extension effective December 14, but Dr. Noll says that was just in case they needed to continue with online-only classes. As of Wednesday, Jefferson County’s 14-day average positivity rate is 19.3%, according to the state coronavirus dashboard.
Dr. Noll says she’ll be thrilled the day they can get all students back in the classroom on a daily basis
