Hybrid Schedule @ FCHS

Announcement of Change to Hybrid Model for FCHS

At this time we have six (6) positive student cases of COVID-19 at Franklin County High School. As a result, 150+ students have been quarantined, including the girls soccer team and both the JV and Varsity football teams. After consulting with the FC Health Department, FCEA Discussion Team, and FCHS Administration, we feel it is in the best interest of our staff and students to move Franklin County High School to a “hybrid model”. High school students will be divided in half. Students with last names beginning with A-K will attend “in person” on Mondays and Wednesdays. Students with last names beginning with L-Z will attend “in person on Tuesdays and Thursdays. On days students are not “in person” they will be working remotely from home. All FCHS students will work from home on Fridays; giving teachers the opportunity to engage students in small group meetings, individual conferences, and for planning. In order to “prepare” for this change, ALL 9-12 students will have an eLearning day on Wednesday, September 16th.

On Thursday, September 17th A-K students will attend “in person” and on Friday,  September 18th L-Z students will attend “in person”.

On Monday, September 21st the following hybrid schedule will begin:

Monday, September 21st – A-K in-person; L-Z remote
Tuesday, September 22nd – L-Z in-person; A-K remote
Wednesday, September 23rd – A-K in-person; L-Z remote

Other points of clarification:

  • Hybrid model will operate through the remainder of this grading period (last day October 14th)
  • Grades PreK-8 will follow their traditional schedule
  • Students that attend the Whitewater Career Center will continue to do so EVERY DAY, Monday through Friday, (exceptions September 16th and October 9th.) We will continue to provide transportation for WCC students and provide a “workspace” at the high school for them to use during their “remote” days.
  • With only half the students in attendance at a time; seating charts will be reworked so that no student is assigned a seat that is within 6 feet of another student. This should minimize the “quarantine effect”.
  • For students that struggle with internet access at home during their scheduled remote days; the high school will have a workspace available to them.
  • Transportation will only be provided for high school students on their scheduled remote days. (Exception is Whitewater Career Center students.)
  • Each Monday, 3 days of breakfasts and lunches will be available to students for their remote days.
  • Afterschool practices and activities may continue.
