Return to Modified HYBRID In-Person and Modified CHOICE Remote Models - January 11, 2021

As you know from Dr. McCartney's letter dated January 3, 2021, the current plan is for all MTPS schools to return to a modified HYBRID and CHOICE remote schedule as of Monday, January 11, 2021.

What will that look like for UES students?

Monday through Thursday

  • Monday through Thursday the UES will follow the HYBRID and CHOICE remote schedules that were followed September through November 20.
  • All Yellow Cohort HYBRID students will be in-person on Monday and Wednesday
  • All Yellow Cohort CHOICE students will be live on Monday and Wednesday
  • All Black Cohort HYBRID students will be in-person on Tuesday and Thursday
  • All Black Cohort CHOICE students will be live on Tuesday and Thursday
  • All students will have synchronous and asynchronous learning via Google Classroom on their non-cohort days.


  • On Fridays, ALL UES students will follow the Full Remote schedule and will have live remote instruction with their teachers from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Fridays will no longer be a color cohort day.

This modified schedule now provides live instruction for all students at least three days per week. Students with IEP's in resource and inclusion programs will attend school Monday through Thursday. Students with IEP's in the UES MD program will attend school Monday through Friday.

Hybrid Parents - Don't Forget to Fill Out the Daily Health Check Form!

As of January 4, 2021, Hybrid parents/guardians are required to fill out a COVID-19 Health Check Form in the Genesis parent portal for each child. The health form needs to be submitted via genesis by 8:00 am daily for UES students. https://parents.mtps.com/moorestown/sis/view?gohome=true

If you are experiencing trouble with genesis access please contact Genesis Help Staff:

Kate Esaia; kesaia@mtps.com

Please make sure this form is completed daily. It is mandatory for all Hybrid students.

Cell Phone and Electronic Device Reminder

As we plan for our return to in-person school, please remember that the UES follows a no personal electronic device policy. Any student that brings a personal electronic device (smartphone, smartwatch, or any other ECRD) to school will need to power off the device, and keep it stored in his or her backpack during the school day.

Schools are not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged personal property. We encourage students to leave expensive technology at home.
