In an April 20 update on the Mercer Island School District website, the definitive dates were announced for the increase of in-person days for all hybrid learners in grades 2-5.
Current second- and third-grade hybrid learners will return to school five days a week starting on April 26. Fourth- and fifth-grade hybrid students will return to school five days a week beginning on April 28. There will no longer be A/B cohorts for students in grades 2-5.
The two-day delay in the fourth- and fifth-grade return allows the district to fine tune building operations, and facilitate district transportation and food services ramp-ups.
Beginning on April 26 and 28, in-person learning is from 9:15 a.m. to 12:35 p.m. for all non-streamers, and online learning for all K-5 students remains from 1:20-2 p.m.
Full-time remote learners will remain streaming.
