On Tuesday, October 27, 2020, the Beaumont USD Board of Trustees approved a plan to provide an afternoon in-person hybrid schedule as an OPTION for our students in the District.
The plan follows four guiding principles:
- Provide Instruction That Maximizes Teacher/Student Interaction.
- Provide a Safe Learning Environment for Students and Staff.
- Provide a Period of In-person Time to Connect Students Socially and Emotionally.
- Provide Options for Parents.
The Beaumont USD DRAFT afternoon in-person hybrid schedule for elementary and secondary is as follows:
In addition to approving the plan for an in-person hybrid schedule, the Board of Trustees also gave direction for students to start the in-person hybrid schedule following the guidelines when Riverside County returns to the Substantial Red Tier. Based on these guidelines the earliest anticipated start date for the in-person hybrid schedule would be Monday, December 7, 2020. If Riverside County's COVID-19 metrics continue to stay in the purple tier, the start date for the in-person hybrid schedule will be pushed back. The District will communicate this information with our families.
On Wednesday, November 4, 2020, you will receive a form from your child’s school site via ParentSquare to select whether you would like your child to stay completely virtual or if you would like your child to participate in the afternoon in-person hybrid schedule. Please note, parents who select virtual WILL remain enrolled in their current school. The school site will use that information for logistical planning. Families that select the in-person hybrid schedule will receive follow-up information regarding the cohort their child has been assigned to and will include whether they will attend in the afternoon on Mondays and Tuesdays OR in the afternoon on Thursday and Fridays.
We understand you may have a lot of questions regarding the hybrid in-person schedule. For Frequently Asked Questions, please visit our FAQ page.
For any further questions or concerns, please directly contact your child’s school site principal.
Thank you for your patience, trust, and collaboration in providing our students with a high-quality educational experience through these uncertain times.
October 16, 2020 - Parent Communication Update for In-Person Instruction
The Beaumont USD Board of Trustees will be reviewing the in-person instruction plan at the October 27, 2020, Board meeting beginning at 6:30 p.m. To virtually attend the Board meeting, please click HERE.
On Tuesday, October 13, 2020, Dr. Amy Nguyen-Hernandez, Assistant Superintendent of Instructional Student Services, provided the Beaumont USD Board of Trustees a detailed presentation on the District’s proposed plan to reopen schools for in-person learning in January 2021.
More than 370 parents, staff, and community members virtually attended the Board meeting and submitted comments, questions, and concerns in regards to safely returning our students to school.
Return-to-School Parent Survey:
The District provided parents with a survey via ParentSquare following the Board meeting to help complete the logistical planning process. It is extremely important for parents to note that in-person instruction will look very different than it did before COVID-19. In-person instruction will NOT be the previous five-days a week six hours a day learning model.
For a detailed explanation of the hybrid model we are allowed to offer based on federal, state, and county health guidelines, please review Dr. Amy Nguyen-Hernandez’s video presentation below.
