100% Remote vs. Hybrid FAQ

100% Remote vs. Hybrid FAQ
Posted on 09/17/2020
We are sharing a new FAQ designed to help parents and guardians make the choice between the hybrid learning model and keeping their student in the 100% remote learning model.

This afternoon, we sent a updated message to elementary parents/guardians. We are asking each family to select one of three choices in Skyward for each student by Monday, Sept. 21.


Thursday email to elementary families:

Dear Tahoma families, 

One of the things this pandemic has taught me is how important it is to adjust as more information becomes available. 

Yesterday, our district sent out a survey asking elementary families to commit to either returning for some in-school instruction (hybrid) or staying 100% remote when King County Public Health numbers for COVID-19 transmission are low enough to allow us to reopen our elementary school buildings. 

We now realize that our survey did not provide an option that some of our families would like to consider. That option is to stay with their current teacher, in whichever learning model (hybrid or 100% remote) the teacher is assigned.  We have modified our survey to allow for this selection. If you already completed the survey and would like to change your selection, you may do so.

We know this caused unnecessary stress for some of our families and we apologize for not having anticipated this being an option that families would want.  We have extended the timeline to Monday, Sept. 21 to allow families to consider this additional option for their student. 

With immense Tahoma gratitude,

Mike Hanson

Superintendent



Original, Wednesday email:

Dear elementary families,
Elementary families are being sent a survey through Skyward Family Access asking them to commit to whether they would like their student to remain in a 100% remote learning model or to return to school in a hybrid learning model.
