## SHS Continuing with Hybrid Model

Good Afternoon,

Attached to this email, please read a letter from Superintendent Andries and our STA President, Mrs. Kennedy. The letter explains that Scituate High School will remain in the A/B hybrid model on Nov. 30th. Below is some of the data that our team used to make our decision. You can see that our in-person attendance is typically at or below 25% of our total student population which meets the Governor's suggested limited model.

The data shows that what we are doing in Scituate is working right now. We will continue to monitor the COVID cases on a daily basis and if we feel we should change our plan, we will.

The Numbers:

As of Nov. 24th Here are the numbers

How many full time DL students- 156/394 = 40%

How many students expected week A 100+11 (full time) =111/394 = 28%

How many students expected week B 126+11 (full time) 35%

How many students are full time in person 11

Attendance in person Nov. 9th (Week A) 90/111 =23% of students in person

Attendance in person on Nov. 10th (Week A ) 60/111 = 15% of students in person

Attendance in person on Nov. 12th (Week A ) 80/111 = 20% of students in person

Attendance in person on Nov. 13th (Week A ) 82/111 = 21% of students in person

Attendance in person Nov. 17th (Week B) 95/137 =24% of students in person

Attendance in person Nov. 18th (Week B) 72/137 =18% of students in person

Attendance in person Nov. 19th (Week B) 87/137 =22% of students in person

## From Social Studies

Students in Modern World History classes recently completed a unit comparing the Bubonic Plague to Covid-19. As a culminating activity, Mrs. Seger invited Dr. James McDonald from the RI Department of Health, and personal advisor to Governor Gina Raimondo, to visit our google meet and answer students questions. Students truly enjoyed hearing about the history of pandemics, as well as the current status of the disease in our state, from an expert.

Scituate VAASSA and SADD are partnering to adopt a family in need this holiday season. If you are able, please consider donating to this family. They will truly appreciate it and every little bit helps!

Thank you in advance and Happy Holidays!

Love,
