DES Hybrid Schedule Information

posted Nov 23, 2020, 11:00 AM by Greg Williams

Thank you for your patience and cooperation in keeping our Greyhound Nation as safe as possible during this time of pandemic as we transition back to the hybrid model for the last few weeks of the semester. Please review the following information to prepare for the new schedule.

Your child will attend school on the same schedule as the first quarter.  Monday and Tuesday if their last name begins with the letters A through K, and on Wednesday and Thursday if their last name begins with the letters L through Z.  If you are a family that asked for your child’s cohort to change during the 1st quarter due to having siblings at different buildings or different last names, they will remain on the same days as they were in the first quarter.

If your child was on full remote first quarter and came back to school second quarter, your child will follow the alphabet guidelines for last name, unless you contact the school to request different cohort days.

Attendance expectations for each grade level will remain in effect from the Hybrid Learning Model. Your child's teacher will communicate directions to students and families for in-person and at-home learning expectations.

If your child needs to check out a chromebook for hybrid learning there will be a staff member available at DES from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm on Tuesday, November 24th. Please come into the building to check out a chromebook. If you already signed a release first quarter you are not required to sign an additional release. If your child is a 3rd or 4th grade student that will be picked up by car on Tuesday, students will be able to take home a chromebook that day. Please contact your child's teacher to let the teacher know if your child will need to bring home a chromebook for remote learning.

If you need to check out a chromebook but you are unable to pick one up on 11/24, please contact the school to make other arrangements.


If your child will need to take home meals for the days they will be out of the building, the process will remain the same. Please call the main office to place your child on the list for take home meals. If your child is a Cohort 1/Red Days student on Monday and Tuesday they will take home meals on Tuesday. If your child is a Cohort 2/Grey Days student on Wednesday and Thursday they will take home meals on Thursday.


Please do not hesitate to call for any other questions or concerns you may have. We will continue to do whatever it takes to help make this learning situation the best possible experience for students and families during this time.
