DES Hybrid Schedule
Rion Rigsby
Friday, November 20, 2020

There will be NO SCHOOL for ALL SMITH COUNTY STUDENTS Monday, 11/23, and Tuesday, 11/24, before the Thanksgiving break due to limited teacher/staff availability and significant student absences related to COVID-19 illness/exposure. We are doing everything we can to keep our students, staff, and families healthy. Buildings will be sprayed for sanitation during this closure. After Thanksgiving break, beginning Monday, November 30, IN-PERSON students will begin a hybrid schedule that will run through Friday, February 12. The 2020-21 school calendar has not been altered and all breaks and holidays will be observed as previously scheduled.

During the hybrid learning schedule, the gold team will attend in person on Mondays and Thursdays. Students on the black team will attend in person on Tuesdays and Fridays. All students will learn remotely on Wednesdays and any other days they are not physically present at school. Students are responsible for attending classes virtually and completion of work on days you are remote. Teachers will be providing live instruction daily.  Faculty and staff will report as normal, 5 days a week. See the calendar below for Defeated Elementary's hybrid schedule.
