Florence City Schools released an official reopening plan for the 2020-2021 school year.
Classes are scheduled to begin on Aug. 20. All students will eat for free during the 2020-2021 school year.
The district is offering traditional and virtual learning options. It says any student who starts the school year in the traditional setting may transfer to the virtual option at any time.
It will have remote learning days for traditional students to cut down on the number of students on campus at one time. Students in grades 7 through 12 will go to traditional classes twice a week and learn remotely twice a week.
Fridays will be used for online meetings for all students. Florence City Schools says the plan is for the remote learning days for traditional students to conclude at the end of the first grading period on Oct. 9.
The district says the following schedule will be used, and it only affects traditional school students of Florence Middle School, Florence Freshman Center and Florence High School:
Beginning on August 20th, FCS students in grades 7-12 will participate in Silver and Blue Remote Learning. This alternating schedule will place half of our student body on campus during any given school day. Students with the last name beginning with “A” through “K” will be assigned to the Silver team, while students with the last names beginning with “L” through “Z” will be assigned to the Blue team.
*Silver team members will attend traditional classes on Mondays and Wednesdays, and participate in remote learning on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
*Blue team students will attend traditional classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and participate in remote learning on Mondays and Wednesdays.
