Hybrid Schedule

(Updated 9/24/2020)
Finley’s hybrid learning model will include two cohorts, or groups (Cohort A and Cohort B). Half of Finley’s students will attend in-person classes 2 days per week (on their assigned A or B day), while the other half learn remotely. Wednesdays will remain designated remote learning days for ALL students and will allow for professional development for staff. (See table below.)

On September 14, 2020 the Benton Franklin Health District (BFHD) provided local schools with updated guidance about returning for in-person instruction.  Using preliminary data, the health district recommended that all schools in Benton County (as well as North Franklin School District) “plan for implementation of in-person hybrid learning models as early as Oct.1, 2020.” (Read the full BFHD letter here.)

Finley students are scheduled to begin returning to school in-person following a phased approach that focuses on bringing our youngest learners, as well as struggling students, back first. The updated plans incorporate 
the latest recommendations from the Benton Franklin Health District (BFHD), which recommend a phased re-entry of students during transition to in-person hybrid learning" as early as October 1st.(Read the full BFHD letter here.) In Finley, this will begin with students in kindergarten starting their first day of hybrid learning on October 5, then phasing in grade bands each subsequent week as follows:
