Virtual Students & Families

Dear Hayes Parents, 

Per Dr. Chapin’s recent email, Hayes Middle School is planning to begin limited in-person instruction on March 1st.  We wanted to reach out to affirm that we have your child documented to continue with their virtual learning for the duration of the second trimester.  Unfortunately, per district policy guidelines, parents that selected virtual instruction for the second trimester cannot request in-person until the third trimester application, which will be coming out shortly as indicated below. 

At this time, we wanted to inform you of two things: daily schedule adjustment and the third trimester application to remain online or join in-person.  

Due to transportation needs for our limited in-person students, we have had to adjust our hourly schedule, which is listed below.  Please note that all students--both in-person and virtual--need to follow this new hourly schedule, Monday through Thursday.  

Before 1st Hour: 7:40-7:50 watch daily announcements and get organized for the day

1st Hour-- 7:50-8:45

2nd Hour--8:50-9:43

3rd Hour-- 9:48-10:41

4th Hour-- 10:46-11:40


5th Hour--12:30-1:25

6th Hour--1:30-2:25

Support Time--2:30-2:50 (Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday)

This schedule will take effect on Monday, March 1st.  We will be sure to update this schedule on all students’ Buzz landing pages and on our homepage the week before implementation; we will also address thoroughly in the daily announcements.  Our current Friday schedule will remain consistent for all students.  Support Time will not be offered on Wednesdays as opportunities have increased for students to receive additional support from their teachers during the school day.

Finally, the third trimester application for parents to elect in-person or virtual instruction will be sent out by Central Office in the near future.  Given the circumstances, we cannot forecast what exactly in-person instruction will look like for trimester three.  We can say, however, that--at minimum--we will begin the third trimester in our limited capacity with the overarching goal of building up to full-time, in-person return as the trimester progresses.  In closing, please watch for that third trimester application to come from Central Office in the near future.  

That is all we have for now.  Please reach out with any questions or concerns.  

Take care, 

Dave and Eric
