Middle schools to adopt 5-day in-person plan


Collierville Schools announced last week that it has activated a “transitional learning plan” to shift its middle schools to five days a week of in-person instruction.
The district made the announcement on Tuesday “in hopes of having students back in the classroom as soon as the beginning of November.”
“This plan is specific to all middle school hybrid students,” wrote Mario Hogue, public information officer for the district, referring to the instructional model that allows students to participate in limited in-class learning.
“Transitioning to this learning model will continue to support the six-feet of social distancing guidelines at both middle schools.”
Hogue said that “no action or response” is currently required for students at Collierville Middle or West Collierville Middle schools.
“This is simply a gentle announcement to give students, caregivers and staff hope and recognition for their dedication and relentless spirit,” he stated. “We believe students learn best in the classroom, collaborating with peers, while building academic relationships with each core teacher.”
Once the middle schools adopt a five-day plan, district officials hope to shift the high school from its current hybrid model.
