COVID-19 cases, exposures move school to blended learning

COVID-19 positive cases and exposure levels have risen at Cassville High School, and due to the situation, the school is experiencing an increase in student absences.

As a result, effective Monday, high school students will transition to a blended learning schedule. This change will take place in the high school only.

The blended learning schedule will reduce the number of students in the building at the same time, thus allowing for smaller class sizes and giving more space for social distancing. Students in grades 9-12 will attend in-person school 2 days a week and will learn virtually 3 days a week.†

During the studentís virtual learning days, students will have access to quality teacher instructed curriculum and assignments. Students will still be responsible for their school work five days per week.

Students will be divided up into two groups, black group and gold group, based on the studentís last name. Family units will be kept together based on enrollment data.

Cassville High School will transition to blended learning on Monday, and the district will re-evaluate this learning model during the first part of November, based on COVID-19 case rates. However, the newly established bell schedule will stay in place for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year.

Monday:†Students will attend all scheduled classes virtually in 20-minute increments with their teacher, based on the above schedule starting at 12:05 p.m.

GOLD: Tuesday and Thursday ó Students with the last name of A-K will attend seated classes based on the posted schedule starting at 8 a.m. unless the student has an Early Bird class.

BLACK: Wednesday and Friday ó Students with the last name of L-Z will attend seated classes based on the posted schedule starting at 8 a.m. unless you have an Early Bird class.

Students will be responsible for their school work five days per week virtually and seated. Scott Regional Technology Center students will attend SRTC every day and must use provided Cassville bus transportation.†

ACES will not be held. However, class time for 7th hour has been increased to 63 minutes to allow for early release of sophomores, juniors, and seniors with incentive cards.†

A grab-n-go breakfast and lunch will be offered at the end of the day Tuesday-Friday for students to take home for the next day.
