Friday the active COVID -19 case count in Coffee Coffee reached 285. While the number is at the moderate spread level, Manchester City Schools is announcing a probable shift to its hybrid schedule on Wednesday, August 12. A hybrid schedule means that students will receive a combination of on-site and distance learning.
Pre-K – 2 will continue to attend school on the traditional schedule during regular school hours, Monday through Friday.
Grades 3 – 8 will move to the A/B rotation that was communicated on August 5. Students in Group A will attend in person on Mondays and Wednesdays. Students in Group B will attend in person on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Fridays are Distance Learning days for students in grades 3-8. Exceptions to this schedule have been communicated to affected families.
The impact of going to a hybrid schedule will reach many in the community. Director of Schools Dr Joey Vaugn said, “We are currently examining alternatives for families with students in grades 3 through 5 who need child care assistance during the school day. That information will be communicated by Tuesday, August 11.”
Please be aware that once a change is made the school district will remain on the hybrid schedule for an extended period of time. The case rate will have to remain below .5% for at least two consecutive weeks for the district to move back to the traditional schedule.
