NJUHSD Returning To Hybrid Learning In January

After returning to full-time Distance Learning around Thanksgiving, due to a spike in student and staff coronavirus infections, the Nevada Joint Union High School District plans to resume hybrid learning on January 19th. District Superintendent Brett McFadden says better health is being reported, especially since more students have been staying home during the holiday breakā€¦

Classes actually resume next Monday, but McFadden says the preference was to wait until the start of the new semester, which is the 19th. Meanwhile, he says it’s too early to tell whether Governor Newsom’s announcement on Wednesday of what’s called a “Safe Schools For All Plan” will be beneficial. Newsom says he’ll propose about two-billion dollars in his state budget plan next month to support safety measuresā€¦

Newsom’s strategy focuses on bringing back the youngest children, or kindergarten through second grade, to the classroom, then phasing in other grade levels through the spring. The Grass Valley School District said, just before the Thanksgiving break, that it planned to resume Hybrid Learning next Monday, but that was still subject to a re-assessment.
