SRES Hybrid School-Wide Expectations

Please review with your student(s) the following Hybrid School-Wide Expectations. Students will be learning this from their teachers this week as well.

SRES Hybrid School-Wide Expectations

Please be sure to note the changes to dropoff and pick up at the Ranch. Thanks for honoring these expectations for the health and safety of our Coyote family.

TK, K, 1st Grade Reminder: On the AM/PM hybrid schedule, students will be learning in-person and have regular homework assigned. Distance Learning provided by the teacher will not continue. Grades 2-6 will have Distance Learning continue on at home learning days.

Hybrid Information: Sent in Previous Communications

  • Dropoff/Pick-up: The classrooms and teachers will be available for dropoff at 7:40 a.m. each day. Since campus access is limited to students and staff, please do not gather on campus or outside the classroom at any time. See the map linked here for SRES Drop Off/Pick Up Procedures. You will see there are three dropoff zones designated by grade level.

  • Daily Wellness Check: Complete a wellness check at home before coming to school using the guidelines for Student Self or Parent/Guardian Screening Check List. If your student(s) has any symptoms indicated on this list, they need to stay home. Please contact the office regarding the student absence.

  • Face masks: Face covering Guidance from CDPH Students are required to wear masks. Students with disabilities and mental health conditions may be able to have a waiver signed from their physician. We encourage you to begin practicing wearing a mask now if you have not done so already.

  • What to bring? If your student has an RUSD technology device(s) or their own device such as a Chromebook, please be sure to have students bring those each day as well as a snack, a water bottle, and don’t forget a mask. School lunch will continue to be provided for free until further notice.

  • SRES Hybrid Bell Schedule (Please note all TK, K, and 1st-grade students will be on the am/pm schedule daily with Monday being a shorter day for K-1. For grades 2-6, school will end at 1:20 daily allowing teachers time to prepare quality distance learning plans on at home learning days).

While everyone will continue learning, knowing when to start in-person is important since not everyone will come at the same time. In-person learning is based on the assigned Hybrid Grouping according to the key below:

TK-1st Grade:

AM = A

PM = B

2nd-6th Grade:

Tuesday &Thursday = A

Wednesday & Friday = B

Monday = Alternating A & B

On Monday, September 21:

  • All TK, K, 1st-grade students will start on the a.m (Group A) and p.m. (Group B) Monday schedule

  • 2nd-6th grade:

    • Group A students will continue distance learning at home. Please follow instructions from your teacher about the morning live meeting and scheduled asynchronous assignments.

    • Group B students will attend in person on campus from 7:50 a.m. to 1:20 p.m.

You can locate the hybrid group assignment (A or B) in the Aeries Parent Portal starting at 5:00 p.m today (Wednesday, September 9). To access this information follow these steps:

  • After logging in to the Aeries Parent Portal go to the Student Info tab,

  • select Demographics, and

  • find the Hybrid Group in the lower right-hand corner.
