Victor Ornelas Elementary School will be moving down to Level 5 Hybrid Learning, from USD 457’s operational plan, starting on Monday, Nov. 16.

Monday will be Day A (last name A-L attending school) and Tuesday will be Day B (last name M-Z attending school) using the (A/B) calendar.   The school has been operating at Level 6 Remote Learning since November 5.

Operation Level 5 is Hybrid Learning that helps to ensure total social distancing with only half of the student population allowed on-site at a time.  The other half of the students will be remote with alternating days using the (A/B) calendar.

Enhanced protective measures include: daily symptomatic screening by teachers; masks required; hourly hand sanitizing; school libraries closed; no indoor PE unless with same classroom group or social distancing can be maintained; desks/tables must be spaced six (6) feet apart; no large group activities: concerts, assemblies, family engagement nights; school playground equipment closed; before and after school academic-focused clubs or activities allowed with social distancing and masks required (Ex. Sign choir, robotics, etc.); and modified lunch schedules.
