COVID Learning Plan update

Beginning Monday, March 1, hybrid students in kindergarten through sixth grade will begin attending school in person, four days per week.

On Monday, March 15, hybrid students in grades 7-12 will begin attending school in person, four days per week. 

Students in the fully virtual program will continue to learn in the virtual format.

  • K-6 virtual students are asked to remain fully virtual. This is due to social distancing protocols, as well as staffing. If you have questions, contact your child’s principal.
  • Virtual students in grades 7-8 who want to return in person should call the school at 574-875-5122 and ask to speak with student services.
  • Virtual students in grades 9-12 who want to return in person should email principal Dr. Lisa Kendall at lkendall@concord.k12.in.us.

As we ease into this transition, Fridays will continue to be a virtual learning day to provide our teachers opportunities to connect with our virtual students at the upper levels and to keep our virtual muscles strong at the younger grades. We have a goal to have students back 5 days a week and will continue to monitor the COVID spread to determine a timeline at a later date.

Students and staff will continue to be required to wear face masks and engage in social distancing. We will also encourage frequent hand-washing and thoroughly clean and disinfect all high-touch surfaces and common areas on a regular basis. 

It is our desire to remain in a more fully in-person learning model. Families can help us remain in this learning model by closely monitoring students for symptoms of COVID-19 and keeping students home when they are not feeling well. 

We will continue to closely monitor state and local data to ensure that the community spread remains at current levels. If it becomes necessary to re-evaluate our plans to reopen more fully, we will communicate that in a timely manner.
