Lake Oswego middle schools to start hybrid learning this month
Lake Oswego School District will begin transitioning middle school students to hybrid in-person learning in two weeks, with sixth graders returning Tuesday, March 16.
Seventh graders will transition to hybrid learning Thursday, March 18, followed by eighth graders Friday, March 19.
"Building off of our elementary school experience, I am confident our middle school students, families, teachers and staff can look forward to a warm and welcoming return to school," Superintendent Lora de la Cruz said in the letter to the community.
According to the letter, each middle school received approximately 40-50 requests to switch to LO Online, the district's fully remote learning option. Each school also received 30-40 requests to switch from LO Online to hybrid learning.
Staff is working to evaluate the effect those change requests will have on schedules and staffing. Families will be notified if their child s schedule needs to be altered as a result of a change request.
"In the days ahead, the principals will communicate more details about student schedule changes and share more specifics about in-person protocols and other preparations underway to support the transition," the letter stated.
