We have a waiting list of families that would like for their children to attend our hybrid learning program, but we are limited due to class sizes and social distancing.

As always, we thank you for your continued support this school year!

Patience, Grace, and Flexibility!

Health Survey

The health survey below was emailed to families of students attending hybrid learning. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey if you have not already completed it.

Hybrid Student Health Information


Students and staff are required to wear a mask at all times during the school day and on the school bus. We are asking that students bring an extra mask with them daily. Please put the extra mask in a Ziploc bag in your student's book bag.


We will have the following safety mitigations on a daily basis:

  • We will take student temperatures when entering the building each day.

  • Masks must be worn properly at all times. Refusal to wear a mask covering the nose and mouth may result in a switch to remote learning for students.

  • Frequent hand washing and/or use of hand sanitizer when changing classes.

  • Students will wipe off their desks each class period.

  • Maintaining distance in the hallways and in the classrooms.

  • Students will not share supplies or materials.

Safety Message


Students will be required to wear a James Hart Wristband daily to indicate the daily self-certification is complete each day.

Wristbands can be picked up in the main office at James Hart when returning the

Daily Health Certification Acknowledgement Form through Monday, March 1st. The office is open from 7:30 am-3:15 pm.

Big picture


Students will need their district-issued school laptops daily. Students will still use their devices to access instruction and submit assignments.

School laptops must be fully charged each day. There will be limited opportunities to charge devices during the school day.

Students are responsible for the care of their laptops and should use the carrying case provided by the district. Laptops should be restarted each day to make sure they are updated.

Please use the link below if:

  • Your child needs a school computer

  • There is a tech issue or damage to the school laptop.

HSD153 Technology Support Ticket


Students will not be allowed to share school supplies, so please make sure your child has basic supplies (paper, pens, and pencils) and a charged school laptop each day. Students will carry bookbags and all supplies to each class. Lockers will not be used.
