FCPS Widens Opportunities for In-Person Instruction
April 13, 2021
Fredericksburg City Public Schools (FCPS) announced plans at the April School Board meeting that it will be expanding opportunities to return students to four days of in-person learning for identified Pre K-12 students.
Based on updated guidance, FCPS students who are currently participating in the hybrid learning model may choose to return to school four days a week at three-foot spacing with continued face-covering requirements. This option is being implemented following a staggered schedule in order to allow each school time to prepare classes and make the necessary adjustments for safety such as changing room assignments and adding furniture.
James Monroe High School hybrid students may start reporting to school four days a week this week, Thursday April 15.
Lafayette hybrid students may begin returning to school four days a week next week on Monday, April 19.
Walker-Grant hybrid students may begin attending school four days-a-week on Monday, April 26, and Hugh Mercer hybrid students may choose to begin their four day-a-week return on Monday, May3.
Please note that hybrid students are not required to return to school four days-a-week. They may continue two days synchronous, off-site and two days in-person, at school.
Also, all students will continue to participate in asynchronous instruction on Wednesdays for the remainder of the school year in order for distance-learning students to complete state assessments by appointment on Wednesdays.
