Students in the Alton School District will be returning to in-person learning soon. The district has announced a Hybrid (or Blended) Learning Plan in which students will attend in person two days per week using a Red and Grey Schedule. All students will then participate in remote instruction and learning on Fridays each week beginning with the start of the second quarter. 

Superintendent Kristie Baumgartner tells The Big Z compacted and shortened school schedules will still be utilized when the hybrid plan begins on October 19.

All previously shared health and safety measures will be required for students attending in-person instruction. Students will be required to wear masks each day while on the bus and at school. Parents/school guardians must self-certify each morning that, prior to school attendance, their child is free of COVID-like symptoms. Also, student temperatures will be taken each day upon arrival at school.
