Hybrid learning started
By Teresa Bigham/The Hesperian-Beacon—
LOCKNEY – Lockney ISD is experiencing its most significant COVID-19 outbreak to date. The contact tracing circle is significant with this outbreak has gone very well according to Lockney ISD officials. “Approximately 75 students and several adults have been quarantined,” said Lockney ISD Superintendent Jim Baum.
Students that attend Lockney High School are currently attending online classes only, as the students that attend elementary and junior high have continued with in-person school unless they have been in direct contact with a person who has tested positive.
Several students have tested positive for COVID-19 and will continue to quarantine at home for the 14 days or until all symptoms are gone and that person has had no fever for 24 hours.
For the high school students that have zero symptoms or signs of COVID-19 will return to high school on Monday, Oct. 26.
Lockney High School students have started a hybrid learning schedule as of Oct 20. Hybrid learning is learning that teaches both in-person and online simultaneously. This schedule is being offered to reduce exposure possibilities for high school students, provide greater time to address remote learning, and provide greater time to address professional development regarding remote instruction. All students will have greater access to teachers during designated remote instruction periods according to Lockney ISD officials.
The ninth and 10th graders will attend on-campus instructions on Monday and Wednesday and participate in on-campus RTI/Enrichment (helping with core classes, while enrichment is the extracurricular) and CTE/Labs (career and technical education class while labs will be bio and chemistry labs, etc.) on Friday.
While 11th and 12th graders will attend on campus instruction on Tuesday and Thursdays and will participate in on-campus CTW/Labs and RTI/Enrichment on Friday.
All students except full-asynchronous remote will attend on-campus instruction for first and sixth periods and activity, CTE/Lab, and RTI/Enrich periods.
