Arlington hybrid high school students to return to school on March 22
High school studentsHigh school students in the Arlington School District will return to in-person instruction in a hybrid model starting on Monday, March 22. This means all Arlington preschool through 12th grade hybrid students will be receiving in-person instruction at least two days a week. Middle school students started returning to school in mid-March. Freshman will have an orientation day on Friday, March 19.

Last month, the Arlington School Board voted to have middle and high school students return to hybrid in-person instruction in March. The board’s action aligns with the state Department of Health’s “K-12 In-Person Learning Provisions.”

“It’s been a little more than a year since we were directed to close our schools due to COVID-19,” said Dr. Chrys Sweeting, Superintendent. “It’s important for our students’ mental, social and academic well-being that they’re on campus for in-person instruction and interacting with their friends. We are very excited to have students from all grade levels on our campuses once again.”

There is another learning option for families that prefer not have their students on campus in a hybrid model. The Arlington Online Program provides self-directed continuous distance learning for K-12 students through online courses with support from an Arlington teacher.
