The Hero Herald Week of September 7, 2020


Duff Elementary . . . No Ordinary Family!

Feeling a little tired and weary today? You may have stayed up until the wee hours of the morning if you tuned into Thursday evenings school board meeting and learned that the district will offer a hybrid model that allows students to continue virtual learning as well as in person learning. We are busily working to create plans at the campus level to make arrival, moving about at school, lunch, recess, fine arts and dismissal as safe as possible. As soon as we have those plans detailed, we will communicate them to you.

"We will launch a hybrid in-person learning schedule for Pre-K – 12 students beginning September 28. Students will attend on their scheduled days based on their surname (A-L or M-Z) twice per week and on designated Fridays." Again, more detailed plans to come in the very near future. Please watch next week for a parent survey regarding staying virtual or choosing the hybrid model. Mrs. Harbison will Facebook Live Wednesday, @10:00AM and will share information and answer questions you may have.
