Hailey Parent Update

Reopening Update - July 30, 2020

Roadmap for Hailey

The following is an outline of the Hailey Roadmap for Reopening. Our team has used CISD guidance to develop the plan and related procedures. More information will come regarding specific procedure changes, such as arrival and dismissal. The information below is a snapshot of how we will provide instruction for all students and several major areas of interest.

In the next weeks, additional information will be provided in order to "Ramp Up to Reopening". In order to Ramp Up to Reopening, we will be inviting small groups of students onto the campus after communication with parents. This will allow for safety procedures to be practiced and implemented to ensure safety and consistency. At this time, we are also working on assigning homerooms based on family selection of Traditional Learning or Remote/Online Learning. Information for Meet the Teacher Night, Parent Information Night, and Kindergarten 101 will be provided in the upcoming weeks.

Thank you for your patience as we continue to work diligently in preparing a safe learning environment for students and staff. And remember, Once a Hailey Comet, Always a Hailey Comet.

Instruction from August 12 through September 4

The instruction that will take place from August 12 through September 4 is known as Intermittent Remote Learning. Intermittent remote learning is for students who have selected in-person instruction but are having to participate in remote learning due to circumstances that has caused a school closure or delay in opening physically.

Online Vs. Traditional Learning


  • Traditional Learners are students whose parents have selected a face-toface learning experience and are physically on campus. This is termed “In-person Instruction.”

  • Intermittent remote learning is for students who have selected in-person instruction but are having to participate in remote learning due to circumstances that has caused a school closure or delay in opening physically.

  • Remote/Online students are students whose parents have selected an online learning experience, and students will not be physically on campus.

What does learning look like?

  • Traditional In-Person Learners

    • Students will begin face-to-face instruction no later than September 8, 2020 as long as health conditions permit.

    • Students will receive direct instruction, weekly schedules, small group instruction, and collaborative/guided instruction through traditional methods that adhere to District guidelines including the use of face coverings and social distancing.

  • Intermittent Remote Learning for Traditional In-Person Learners
    • Students will receive a weekly schedule with daily task lists to help students and parents structure their day.
    • Weekly course task lists/schedules will be published (Seesaw/Canvas) the Friday prior to the next week’s instruction.
    • Parents may choose to alter this schedule based on family needs as long as the student is engaged each day and tasks are completed by the due date.
    • Attendance will not be determined by whether or not a child logs in at a given time but rather if the student has engaged (Canvas, Seesaw, email/phone correspondence) within a 24-hour period.

  • Remote/Online learning students

    • A weekly course schedule will be developed with daily task lists to help students and parents structure their day so that times are defined for student interaction and the opportunity to engage.

    • Engagement may be defined as real-time (synchronous) direct instruction lessons, collaborative/guided practice or working independently on class assignments or assessments.

    • Course schedules will be published (Seesaw/Canvas) the Friday prior to the next week’s instruction.

    • Parents may choose to alter this schedule based on family needs as long as the student is engaged each day and tasks are completed by the due date.

    • Teachers may ask students to engage in real-time (synchronous) learning using a virtual platform such as Zoom or Canvas Conference. Should a student be unable to meet at a given time, he/she can engage in pre-recorded lessons within the LMS (Seesaw/Canvas) or can directly communicate with the teacher to determine a mutually agreed upon time to review academic content needs.

    • Attendance will not be determined by whether or not a child logs in at a given time but rather if the student has engaged (Canvas, Seesaw, email/phone correspondence) within a 24-hour period.

This form is for Hailey families who wish to request the use of a Chromebook during online learning. This form allows requests for a Chromebook for those selecting in-person learning.

Yearbook Update:

There is still no information from Lifetouch on when we can expect our yearbook. We have emailed and/or called once a week since May, but they still cannot give us any sort of time frame on when we should expect our books. The only response we get is that it is in production. Please be assured that all deadlines were met for this book and the final was submitted before its due date. At this time, we are at the mercy of Liftouch and their production of our books. I know that it is frustrating, but as soon as there is an update with more information we will let you know. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
