Hybrid Learning Guide
Harriton High School
Dear Students and Families,
It is important that we have a record of students who are in the building for contact tracing purposes. If your student will be absent from a class or absent for the day, please complete the Safe Arrival Form or call the Safe Arrival Hotline at 610-649-3949. While this is an absence form, and your child will be working from home, we need to be aware that your child is not in the building. Working from home will not be considered an absence. Telling a teacher that your child is working from home is not sufficient. This form must be completed if you plan to keep your child home during the hybrid time for a short term period of time (two weeks or less). If your intention is for your student to be learning from home for at least the remainder of the first semester, please complete the Pathway Change Request Form HERE. Additionally, it is very challenging for teachers to plan engaging lessons in the current environment, which is exacerbated when they do not know whom to expect in person or online. Their efforts to prepare a weekly planner to support our students’ work rely on their ability to predict in-person and online attendance.
