Hybrid Learning Guide

Harriton High School

Dear Students and Families,

Please play the video below to learn more about the information in this Hybrid Learning Guide. We know this format comes with a learning curve and we are hopeful that this edition of smore will help you navigate our return to school and the hybrid model. Please refer to this smore to help guide you/your student through this learning experience.

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.
