Las Vegas (FOX5) – A big week awaits families in Clark County School District. Starting Tuesday, elementary school students will be invited to the building every weekday and the remaining older students will be given the opportunity to return to some form of face-to-face learning during the school year.
Spring break lasts until Monday, but from Tuesday 7th, 8th, 10th and 11th grades will be invited to the classroom. However, their schedule does not look exactly traditional.
“They only go to school two days a week, and for hybrid kids, they actually go to school only half a day,” said Rebecca Garcia, president of Nevada PTA.
For now, Garcia said families need to remain flexible in responding to the changes brought about by the pandemic.
“They only do a few classes at school and then go home and do more work at home,” Garcia said.
But one CCSD sophomore we talked to said it was better than nothing. She said she was most looking forward to social interaction.
Alexandra Rollins, a student at Brian and Tericrum Middle School, said: “And you’re more awake. You just have to turn off the mic and cam and stare at your computer, so just sitting there makes you feel like you’re falling asleep.”
Rollins said he was struggling academically, especially in the field of mathematics, but hopes that hybrid learning will increase her concentration.
“When you go to the real place, you wake up to the surroundings, the sunlight, and everything else,” says Rollins.
Despite the changes, many CCSD families choose to keep their students in distance education.
