Hybrid and Fully Remote Education at DPHES

Starting March 8th, we began Hybrid learning for scholars who have chosen the Hybrid option. These scholars will be attending school two days a week (Block A or B) and remain fully virtual for the rest of the week. Hybrid scholars must undergo a health screening daily upon arrival and wear a mask at all times. Scholars who have chosen to be fully virtual are at home 5 days a week.

Both Hybrid and Fully Remote scholars will be logging into Clever and accessing the Zoom links posted on their Google Classroom to engage in learning their teachers. Since technology is an essential component of learning, parents must ensure that the child has a working laptop, Chromebook, or tablet to work from.

Daily attendance is taken at Dream Time. Please make sure you are logging into Dream Time on Zoom, so that the teacher can mark your child present.

Scholars will be utilizing Clever, Google Classroom, I-Ready, Edulastic, BrainPOP, and more during remote learning, so we encourage you and your scholar to explore its features by clicking on the icon.

Additionally, if you are having tech issues with your computer, internet, or one of the platforms below, please notify your scholar’s homeroom teachers, so they may troubleshoot for you!

Please see below regarding more detailed information about HYBRID.

Our first day of Hybrid Learning is March 8th for Block A and March 11 for Block B. You should have already received an email from the Operations Team regarding your child’s hybrid schedule. The email below is to remind you of our Hybrid school policies and practices. Please see below for upcoming important dates, changes, and reminders. All information must be read in detail.
