Brinnon students to shift back to hybrid model

Starting Monday, students to have three days online, two days in person

BRINNON — Brinnon School District will move to a hybrid learning model Monday due to the high-risk case rate of COVID-19 within Jefferson County.

The model shifts students from four days of in-person learning to two days weekly, with grade levels split, to reduce the number of students on campus at any one time.

Kindergarten, second- , fourth- , seventh- and eighth-grade students will attend Monday and Tuesday, the district said. Transitional kindergarten, first- , third- , fifth- and sixth-grade students will attend Thursday and Friday, the district said.

The three days that the students are not in-person will be taught remotely, and the district will continue its fully remote plan with the families who opted into that plan at the beginning of the school year, the district said.

Officials will send breakfast and lunch home with the students for the three remote days.

The district will monitor the case rates in the county in case the levels either continue to climb and the district needs to move to fully remote learning, or the levels improve and in-person learning can be expanded.

“Our goal is to serve the families in our community, while at the same time complying with all guidelines and requirements and keeping everyone safe,” said Superintendent Trish Bethard.

“We have very supportive families, a school board committed to the success of our little school, and a wonderful staff that we call our school family.

“While we are offering some in-person instruction, our families continue to have a remote option.”

Port Townsend, Chimacum and Quilcene school districts all plan to return to districtwide remote learning beginning Monday.
