Scenario 4 is a hybrid schedule that creates smaller cohorts of students to limit the number of people on campus each day. Your principal will communicate about your student’s group assignment. Group 1 will attend in-person class on Mondays and Tuesdays and learn remotely on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Group 2 will learn remotely on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and attend in-person class on Thursdays and Fridays. Under Scenario 4, students in Functional Academics, Life Skills, AIMS and Delta will have the opportunity to attend school in person on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

The first week of school, September 8-11, will deviate from the Scenario 4 plan slightly in that students WILL attend in-person classes on Wednesday, September 9. You will hear additional details about the first week from your principal soon.
Health Screenings & Masks

Students should be kept home if they are ill or exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms. Masks or face shields are also required of all students, staff and visitors to BISD facilties or on buses. Masks or face shields must cover the nose and mouth.

Each Belton ISD student will be issued a school device, either an iPad or Chromebook, that will be utilized with the district’s curriculum. This includes both At-School and At-Home learners.
