Virtual Learning Process & Qualifications
Since the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year, a Virtual Learning Model has been available for students/families to opt out of returning to in-person learning. This option requires a 10-week commitment.
As the school year has progressed, there have been a variety of reasons that students have not joined in-person learning for short periods of time. This document will serve to define which situations qualify for joining the Virtual Learning Model for a short-period of time. Participation in the Virtual Learning Model allows a student to be marked as “present” in school.
The following COVID related situations qualify a student for short-term participation in the Virtual Learning Model:
Mandated quarantining for COVID/medical reasons/contact tracing reasons
Testing positive for COVID
**Students who remain home due to COVID like symptoms for 1-2 days will not be a Virtual Learning student. As per the NYSDOH recommendation, a student remaining home for more than 48 hours due to COVID like symptoms requires a COVID test.
For Elementary Students Only: Students awaiting COVID test results may have the opportunity to join Virtual Learning. Arrangements will be made through the office.
