Under the hybrid model that was initially created by the "Different in September, but Together" initiative, each school student would be assigned to a group - A, B, or C -- that will determine their attendance schedule. This will bring one-third of the school's students into the classroom at a time in order to implement proper "social distancing in all indoor spaces of our schools, hallways, and stairwells."

More information to come as details are announced by the School District.
