Dear Hayes Families of 3rd Trimester Virtual Students,


At last night’s School Board meeting, the Grand Ledge Board of Education voted to amend the current education plan to allow more students to return to the school building while still maintaining our Virtual program. Therefore, as announced in recent communications, when the 3rd Trimester begins on April 5th, some minor changes will occur to the current Virtual program. What this means to you and your students:

While we are working to maintain teacher relationships as much as possible, student class schedules and teachers may change. We are attempting to complete most schedule changes by Thursday, March, 25th, but some schedule changes may be made for the first two weeks of the 3rd Trimester.

For most core classes (English Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and Math), the Zoom sessions will move to the afternoon on Monday through Thursday.

Elective class Zoom sessions will be offered between 7:40 and 1:00 on Monday through Thursday and the exact schedule will be announced by each child’s elective teacher. Generally, elective class Zooms will be twice a week, Monday through Thursday.

The Live Friday schedule will continue, with periods 1-6 offered on Friday.

When students are NOT attending Live Zoom sessions between 7:40-1:00 Monday-Thursday and after 1:00 on Friday, they are expected to complete asynchronous/on demand activities for their classes.

Here is the general Zoom schedule for core classes; some classes may have a different Zoom schedule and that will be communicated directly by your student’s core class teacher:
