ELMIRA HEIGHTS, N.Y. (WETM) – Superintendent Michael Gill plans on bringing hybrid learning to the Elmira Heights School District.
The daunting wait for schools to re-open is now over. Governor Cuomo announced today specific guidelines for school districts statewide to re-open this fall.
For the Elmira Height School District, students will be assigned to two different groups. The first group will be brought on Mondays and Tuesdays, while Wednesdays will be a cleaning day Thursdays, and Fridays will be for group two’s classes.
Superintendent Gill said most the important thing about re-opening the schools is keeping the entire family involved along the process.
As a part of the re-opening process, Gill is working on getting three communication sessions between the school and family as well to keep them involved throughout the school year.
So what we will be doing is opening up in the hybrid model where approximately 50% or a little less of our students will be in the buildings at one time.Michael Gill, Elmira Heights Superintendent
Rotating in two different types of formats. Currently, the model we are working through at the elementary level is we will be bringing half of our group in the morning and running them home and picking up a second group in the afternoon.
