Rockbridge County School Board moves forward with “Staggered Hybrid Plan” for second nine-weeks

Back to School

ROCKBRIDGE COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — On Friday morning, Rockbridge County School Board approved a “Staggered Hybrid Plan” for the beginning of the second nine-weeks.

The plan will begin on November 10. Pre-K, kindergarten, and 1st graders will continue to be offered in-person learning for four days a week.

In the hybrid plan, Grades 2, 3, 6, and 9 will be offered in-person learning using two groups. One group will attend on Monday and Tuesday and the second group will attend on Wednesday and Thursday. Friday will be an all virtual day with no students in-person.

On November 30, all other grade levels will return in the hybrid model using two groups. One group will attend on Monday and Tuesday and the second group will attend on Wednesday and Thursday. Friday will be an all virtual day with no students in-person.

An all virtual model will remain in place for any family that does not wish to return to in-person learning.

A letter from Division Superintendent Dr. Phillip Thompson said the following:

This Staggered Hybrid Learning Plan allows for a cautious return of students to our schools. This plan will allow more student needs to be met by in-person learning. It will also allow educators the opportunity to potentially try new techniques on a smaller group of in-person students before the return of a majority of our students on Monday, November 30th.

School officials will continue to seek additional information from families as they transition to this new learning plan.
