Our Hybrid Bell Schedule allows for one or two grade levels to be learning at school while other students are learning from home. We began the school year with one grade level coming to campus each day; however, beginning Tuesday, September 8, our updated Hybrid Bell Schedule divides students from two grade levels in half alphabetically by last name and requires them to report to campus based on the schedule, while other students are learning from home.
E-Learning will be used when it is not safe to have in-person learning, and all teaching and learning will be done remotely. Based on feedback we received from year-end surveys of students and teachers, we modified our E-Learning Bell Schedule to include a lunch period, start the school day earlier and increase class periods by 5 minutes in length. Visit the E-Learning Days web page for additional information.
Traditional Bell Schedule
It is our goal to return to our Traditional Bell Schedule as soon as possible. ISBE’s guidance suggests that it is best to return to school in phases. When we do return to full-capacity learning in the building, we expect that we will need more time in the morning to screen students for symptoms of COVID-19; therefore, we’ve adjusted our daily school schedule to start at 8:00 a.m. for the entire school year when there is in-person learning happening in the building. Class periods will be 55 minutes long and time will be added to the second period and fifth period of the day to accommodate homeroom announcements and the Examen prayer, respectively.
