Q: Does my child attend school with everyone from their class?
A: No. The A/B model described above divided each class into two groups (an A group and a B group). Further, only one group will be on-campus at any given time. This assists in our efforts to maintain appropriate social-distancing.

Q: Will Ridgefield Remote remain the same?
A: Yes. Students remaining with Ridgefield Remote will continue to follow the same schedule they currently have.

Q: Will Ridgefield Remote remain an option available to my child all year?
A: Yes the current survey asks you to commit through the end of the first trimester (November 24). Prior to the end of the first trimester, the District will send another survey asking you to make a choice for the second trimester.

Q: Will my child(ren) have the same teacher when we transition to hybrid?
A: The District cannot promise that students will have the same teacher in either instructional mode. This is because the District must balance teacher staffing between both instructional modes (Ridgefield Remote and hybrid). Please know, it is the District’s intention to keep as many students as possible with their current teacher.

Q: Will recess be offered in the hybrid model?
A: Yes, there will be recess.

Q. Do students have to wear masks when on-campus?
A: Yes, safety is our utmost priority. Following guidance from the Washington Department of Health, masks are required for all students, staff, and parents when in District buildings and when using District transportation.

Q: Will students still have specialists (art, library, music, PE) in the hybrid model?
A: Yes, students will continue to receive instruction from our specialists.

Q: Will social-distancing protocols be in place?
A: Yes, the District will enforce guidance from the Washington Department of Health, Clark County Department of Health, and Labor and Industry.
