Important Dates for Elementary Transition to Hybrid (PK-5)

Greetings Richfield Families, 

As you know, our PK-5 students who were previously enrolled in the hybrid program will be returning to the classroom on Monday, January 25. To allow teachers time to prepare for the transition, we have made some adjustments to the school calendar for our elementary families. 

Thursday, January 21

  • Distance learning students: School will continue as scheduled.
  • Hybrid students: No school (synchronous learning). This will allow teachers time to prepare for the transition to in-person learning. Asynchronous activities may be assigned, but are not required. Your child’s teacher will provide information on expectations.

Friday, January 22

  • All PK-5 students: No school (synchronous learning). This will allow hybrid teachers time to prepare for the transition to in-person learning and distance teachers time to prepare for any student roster changes. Asynchronous activities may be assigned, but are not required. Your child’s teacher will provide information on expectations.

Monday, January 25

  • All K-5 students: School resumes. Students in the hybrid program are now in-person 4-days per week, and distance learning students continue as previously scheduled.
  • Preschool students: Students in the hybrid program return to their most recent hybrid half-day schedule and distance learning students continue as previously scheduled. Please direct questions to your child’s teacher or school.

Friday, January 29

  • All PK-12 students: No school or synchronous learning for our districtwide professional development day (as previously scheduled).

If your child has been participating in the Tier 1 Childcare program for essential employees, this will continue unchanged through Friday, January 22. Beginning the week of January 25, this will transition to a Wednesday-only program for students in the hybrid program. Learn more on our Tier 1 childcare web page.

Look for detailed information from your child’s teacher and/or school in the next few days that will provide you with any school and class-specific information to help with the transition. 

We know this year has been full of changes and transitions. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we all navigate through this together.

The Significance of MLK Day in 2021

At Richfield Public Schools, we want to be part of the solution—part of helping to realize Dr. King’s dream: that his children and children everywhere “will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

At last night’s school board meeting, we recommended a return to hybrid learning for students in grades PK-5 effective Monday, January 25. This applies only to those students who were previously enrolled in the hybrid program. Please carefully review this detailed information if this transition applies to your child.

Following the guidance from Governor Walz last week, we will remain in distance learning when we return from break, but we anticipate transitioning back into hybrid learning for students in grades PK-5 shortly after.
