Hybrid Model to Start 2020-2021 School Year 

Monroe Local School District will start the new school year with the Hybrid Model beginning on Monday, August 24 through Friday, October 16 for students in grades K-12. Due to the already reduced numbers in preschool, they will reopen as planned. Student who are enrolled in Monroe's Virtual Learning Academy will also begin school on August 24.

The district details the Hybrid Model in the 2020-2021 School Operating Plan. The Hybrid Model combines in-person learning with online learning and is used if state or local regulations determine we require additional social distancing. This model will allow for a reduced number of students in the building while providing a combination of in-person and online learning. All students will be in-person two days a week. When at home, students will work on online assignments and tasks assigned during the in-person days. See details under the Hybrid Model on page 14 of the MLS Operating Plan.

The district plans to resume in-person instruction on Monday, October 19. This in-person start date could change again based on the most current health guidelines from our Governor, Ohio Department of Health, and Butler County Health Department.
