A short video on what hybrid learning will look like at Holmes.

Thank you for your close attention to the Return to Campus Family Selection Survey sent out to all DJUSD families on Monday, March 8. Your response allows us to prepare to meet the needs of students who will return to campus, as well as those who will continue with Distance Learning for the duration of 4th Quarter.

In secondary schools, simulcasting will be the primary mode of instruction. This means teachers will be presenting content to their in person students in the classroom and to those at home on Zoom simultaneously. Simulcasting is also how students who are participating in hybrid in-person learning will access instruction on their “at home” days. Students learning in person in the classroom may or may not be on their Chromebooks or laptops during the school day. All students attending in person will bring their 1-to-1 laptops with them to and from school each day. If your child needs a laptop for in person learning, you can still check out a Chromebook from the District Office.

We have put together a quick presentation to explain some of the ways coming back to campus will look different. Students will be required to wear a mask while on campus, and must maintain social distancing requirements. Students will not be allowed to use their outside lockers or PE lockers, therefore any student with PE Quarter 4 will have to come to school dressed and ready to participate in a PE activity. During lunch, students will have to eat outside, socially-distanced, at lunch tables or on grass areas. Students will go to 7th period after lunch and then be dismissed to finish the school day distance learning at home. This link is especially helpful in understanding the schedules and expectations of each day. Please note, on Wednesdays, all students will be distance learners.

Our Return to Campus website and Return to Campus Guide have answers to many of your questions. We are all working very hard to anticipate the needs of our students, both those who will return in-person and those who are staying in Distance Learning. We are looking forward to seeing many of you in person and cannot wait until next fall when we anticipate a full return to campus.
