JAMESTOWN – Jamestown High School will soon be transitioning back to in-person instruction.
Subject to guidance from New York State and the Chautauqua County Health Department, the district plans to reopen the building in two weeks on Monday, December 7.
Students will be attending in two cohorts, with the red cohort attending class in-person on Monday morning and the green cohort on Tuesday morning.
Then both groups will continue virtual learning until the week of December 14, when the red cohort will attend in the mornings on Monday and Wednesday, and the green cohort will attend on Tuesday and Thursday.
All afternoons and Fridays will continue as scheduled for remote learning for all 10 through 12 graders. Ninth graders will continue with their normal weekly schedule.
Officials say students who chose full-time distance learning in September will continue learning at home.
“We know how important it is to our students and families to return to in-person instruction,” said JHS Principal Dana Wiliams. “We feel confident that our health and safety protocols are ready for our students to return. We know our students need the school community not only academically, but also for social and emotional reasons too.”
Williams says by bringing these grade levels back from Thanksgiving to the Winter Recess, they will watch how everything progresses and adjust accordingly if needed.
“Please remember, our plans must remain flexible as they are based on guidance from New York State and the Chautauqua County Department of Health,” furthered Williams.
JHS families and students will receive more detailed information, including cohorts, directly from the school. For more information, visit jpsny.org/JHS.
