Bell Schedule: UDATED

February 16, 2021


Dear FDHS Students and Families,


We are preparing to welcome back students who have selected in-person instruction beginning February 25th for 9th grade, and March 2nd for all students who made the selection to return in-person.  This decision was made by the PWCS School Board and will be reviewed at their meeting on February 17th. 


As we move into the Hybrid model, there will be a change in the bell schedule for all high school students in PWCS beginning the week of February 22nd, 2021.  Lunches will be on a rolling basis during 4th and 5th periods and students will be told their assigned times and eating locations if they are in-person.  Students remaining in the virtual model will follow this schedule as well. We will be sending more information next week on how lunches will work, as well as other important updates.  For now, the important thing I wanted everyone to see is how the bell schedule will be different than it is now, starting February 22nd, regardless if you are learning in-person or virtually.  Please note the 7:25 daily start time.

 

Students can log into StudentVue to find out if they are VO (virtual only), T/R (Tues/Thurs in-person) or W/F (Wed/Fri in person) by looking at their assigned House and/or RTL (return to learn) Preference.  In addition to time changes, please notice the following:


  • 1st period occurs every day
  • All students will attend 1st-2nd-4th-6th on Tuesday and Wednesday.
  • All students will attend 1st-3rd-5th-7th on Thursday and Friday.
  • In-person students will be physically at the school either Tuesday/Thursday or Wednesday/Friday as assigned. This is according to Virginia Department of Health guidance as a mitigation factor to space out possibilities of exposure to COVID.


This will take some time to get used to as this new schedule will be an adjustment for all high school students and staff members in PWCS.  As we’ve done all year, we will once again face this new change with patience, flexibility, and grace.  Thanks again for your ongoing support.
