Schools Chief Monica Goldson recently announced PGCPS’ plans to resume in-person teaching and learning this spring.
“In April, we will implement a hybrid learning schedule, where students can split their time between in-person and remote learning, and that families may opt into,” Goldson said in a press release. “We believe this plan prioritizes health, safety, equity and excellence.”
Families will have until Sunday, Feb. 28 to complete a survey regarding a hybrid learning model that will include staggered scheduling with students divided into two groups for in-person instruction on back-to-back days with appropriate social distancing in classrooms and throughout the school building.
The remaining three days will be spent in distance learning sessions each week.
On Thursday, April 8, Phase 1 instruction will begin with a two-day hybrid learning schedule for all special education students in kindergarten through 12th grade and for students in prekindergarten through sixth grade and 12th grade.
On Thursday, April 15, Phase 2 instruction will begin for all remaining seventh- through 11th-graders.
It’s time for “Thursday Night Basketball” or “Monday Night Football” — Prince George’s County-style — with PG 13, a series about PGCPS high school sports.
This season tune in on Mondays at 7 p.m. for on- and off-the-field and court with teams, coaches, players, fans and families.
All 13 episodes will be broadcast on PGCPS social media channels, pgcps.org and PGCPS-TV 96 (Comcast) and 38 (Verizon).
