We are so glad we will be able to begin our hybrid instruction program after spring break!
Please read the following Hybrid Parent/Student Guide for Orchard School. It is important that you understand the expectations and procedures for the hybrid leaning model. Here you will also find daily schedules for TK-6 as well as 8th grade.
As we prepare to return to in-person hybrid instruction there will be several opportunities for parents to zoom with district and site staff to hear more about the hybrid model procedures and protocols. You will also be able to ask questions.
The district is hosting two townhall meetings in the next two weeks:
Nutrition Services is excited to welcome back students on Tuesday, April 6. We are working hard on our preparations and had to make some temporary changes to accommodate on-campus meal programming. Nutrition Services' “School Meals 2 Go” curbside program will not be offered Tuesday, April 6. Curbside service will resume at all sites on Wednesday, April 7.
For all Cohort A and B students participating in in-person instruction:
There will be no on-campus eating of breakfast and lunch.
Students may take a meal kit home at the end of instruction on their designated cohort days. All meals will continue to be free for students.
Meal kits contain breakfast, lunch, supper and snack for the day they are on campus.
For off-campus cohort instruction days - students may pick up meals curbside at their school of attendance, 30 minutes after morning synchronous instruction ends.
For all Cohort C students, and children not yet enrolled in school (up to age 18):
Cohort C and community meals will be offered at Twin Rivers school sites curbside - Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
Meal service starts 30 minutes after morning synchronous instruction ends and will be for one hour.
We ask that families visit one school site only.
Every Wednesday, distance-learning day for all students:
Curbside meal service will be from 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. at the student’s school of attendance.
Students will receive a 3 day meal kit on Wednesdays.
We ask that families visit one school site only, if picking up for multiple children, however, one meal kit per child.
With curbside service, we will continue to encourage families to be proactive in reducing the risk of COVID-19 by continuing to wear a face covering, wash hands often, and stay home if you are sick. Lastly, we ask that families help maintain COVID-19 safety and social distancing measures by not congregating at the school site once you receive meal kits.
In accordance with Twin Rivers policy, starting the week of March 22, 2021:
- Visitors are allowed in the office by appointment only. - Visitors may not enter the actual campus. - Visitors to the office will be screened for COVID symptoms, including a touchless temperature check. - Visitors to the office must wear a face covering.
