HS/MS Hybrid Learning Plan

Federal Hocking HS/MS

Hybrid Learning Plan



7:50 Teacher Day Begins

  • This time is to be used to communicate with students that are fully remote.


8:50 Students arrive on buses

  • Students will exit buses a few at a time so they will be spaced out as they enter the building. Temp will be taken at the door.  HS students in HS doors, MS students in MS doors.

  • Students will NOT be permitted to use their lockers or go to the restroom upon entering the building.  Time will be given for that shortly thereafter.

  • Students must follow the arrow pattern in the halls when arriving and between classes and lunch.

  • Students will go directly to their Morning Block classroom. 


8:55 - 10: 45 Morning Block (Mon/Weds - first period, Tues/Thurs - 3rd period)

  • Classrooms will be set up with desks facing one direction, 6 ft apart.

  • All teachers will assign seats for each student in every class as per CDC Guidelines. (They will also have assigned seats for lunch.)

  • Masks will be worn fully (covering nose and mouth) at all times while in the building.  Students who have to be reminded multiple times will return to virtual learning.  If your child has a medical reason for not wearing a mask, documentation from a doctor must be provided.

  • Students are not permitted to eat food during classes -- only during designated breaks while outside or in the lunchroom. 

  • Water only in bottles with straw or spout openings so that water can be consumed without removing masks. (Teachers must follow this protocol when students are in their rooms.)

  • To avoid groups in the restroom, students are not permitted to use the restroom during passing time. They may go to the restroom out of class only; teachers will allow only one student out at a time and remind students to go to their designated restroom. This is the only time that students can walk directly to the assigned restroom, even if it is against the arrows. 

  • Breakfast will be provided in shifts, as a break during first block. It can be eaten in the designated commons area or outside.  This also gives students a break from wearing their masks if they are eating or outside.

  • Students will be dismissed from first block to advisory by intercom. 

  • Students must sanitize their desk before leaving for lunch.  Sanitizing wipes will be provided.



Students and teachers will eat in three shifts. Teachers will eat when their advisory students go to lunch.


10:55 - 11:25    Group A lunch advisory advisory

11:30 - 12:00    Group B advisory lunch advisory

12:05 - 12:35    Group C advisory advisory lunch


  • Advisories will be divided into three groups.

  • Each group of advisories will be dismissed for lunch by announcement. 

  • Students will go to their designated lunchroom to eat a sack lunch in an assigned seat. After 20 mins, they will be taken to the gymnasium nearest their lunchroom for relaxation time; this will give the custodians time to clean tables.

  • They will be dismissed to their advisory room before the next group is called down.



  • Teachers may take their advisory outside for a mask-break during advisory. While outside of the building, students must stay 6 feet apart to remove masks. Teachers must remain with students at all times.

  • Students will be dismissed to their afternoon class by announcement. 

  • Students must sanitize their desks before leaving advisory to go to afternoon block.


12:45 - 2:35  Afternoon Block (Mon/Weds - 2nd block, Tues/Thurs - 4th block) 

  • Afternoon breaks may be observed according to schedule. If masks are removed, this break must be taken outside.

  • Students must sanitize their desks before leaving for the day.


2:35 - 2:50 Dismissal 

  • Students will be dismissed to buses by announcement, a few classes at a time. 

  • Students should remain at their desks while waiting to be dismissed.

  • MS teachers must walk their classes to the busses, in order to keep students from grouping.

HS teachers must move into the hallway to monitor students as they leave the building.



  • There will be no specific posting schedule for class assignments; teachers will, as always, use their professional judgement when posting and collecting assignments.

  • Assignments will remain online; teachers are not expected to collect or return papers.

  • Kids who are constantly being told to pull their masks up, will be sent home for remote learning.  If your internet access at home is an issue, be sure to remind your child that if they would like to remain in-house, to follow the mask and social-distancing rules.  This is non-negotiable.

  • Please screen your child prior to sending them to school.  This is important because if they have a fever (100.1 or higher) or exhibit any 2 of the following symptoms, an adult will have to come and get them.  A child will not be put on the bus to be taken home.  Symptoms to screen for are:

  • Cough

  • Headache

  • Chills

  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

  • Muscle pain

  • Sore throat

  • Loss of taste or smell

  • Diarrhea

  • Known close contact with a person who is lab confirmed to have COVID-19
