NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. – The New Hartford Central School District is switching to a hybrid learning plan earlier than scheduled, according to Superintendent Robert Nole.
On Wednesday, Nole sent a letter notifying parents of the plan to implement a hybrid model, where students will learn both remotely and in-person, starting Sept. 28. Nole says the decision was made during the school board meeting Tuesday night.
The letter read, in part:
“This decision was the result of an evaluation of reopening procedures and protocols by the Board of Education and district administration. Throughout this evaluation process, the Board of Education has both welcomed and relied on feedback from the entire school community, including students, parents, teachers and staff.”
The district had initially planned to follow a 100% virtual learning plan for six weeks, until Oct. 23.
Nole says details will soon be released regarding health screenings, instructional procedures and transportation plans.
