On August 11, 2020, Bishop Kelley began classes in a Hybrid II Model. The Hybrid II Model includes learning five days a week, Monday through Friday in two different platforms: in-class and distance learning.
While a student is in distance learning, they will still be present (through video stream) and actively participating alongside the in-person students and faculty. The quality and quantity of instructional content will not change from in-person to virtual environments.

BK Hybrid II Overview & Guidelines

To read the Plan for the Start of School: Hybrid II Learning Model or for additional COVID-19 resouces visit the COVID-19 Updates Page. 

Philosophy

The safety of Bishop Kelley students, faculty and staff is primary.  When conditions warrant, Bishop Kelley will choose to implement the Hybrid II  BK Learning model.  This will allow students to continue learning with a maximum 50% student population on the campus at any given time to ensure social distancing protocols.  The Hybrid II model mixes in-person instruction with Distance Learning, alternating between the two learning environments on different days of the week. Students are  split into two (2) student groups: Cohort A and Cohort B.  Each cohort alternates dates of attendance on campus and Distance Learning.  All students learn through the Distance Learning model on Wednesday mornings.

    BK Hybrid II FAQ

    • When does a student come to school and when do students do Distance Learning?  

      • All students are assigned into Cohort A or Cohort B which determines when they will be on-campus and when they will be doing Distance Learning.  See calendar above.

    • Can I change my cohort?

      • Cohort assignments were made in an effort to keep classes balanced.  Siblings should be both in the same cohort.  In an extreme situation, please contact Vice-Principal Jeff Pratt jpratt@bishopkelley.org for consideration of replacement in a different cohort.

    • How will I know my grades in a class?

      • Grade books will be maintained by teachers through PlusPortals in the same manner as during previous quarters for the 2020-2021 school year.

    • What about classes for which I will need supplies, like Art?  

      • Any classes which need supplies will be communicated directly to students and their families.  Most students will be able to pick their supplies up when they are in class; however, students who are on Distance Learning for long term may need to make special arrangements to pick up their supplies. Please continue to monitor email closely.
