District releases in-person learning schedule

Distance learning will still be available

The Juneau School District released a schedule Tuesday for when students can return to in-person learning in January.

The district returns from winter break Jan. 7, and under the new schedule kindergarten and first grade would return to classrooms on Jan. 11. That is also when students in sixth through 12th grade would resume in-person learning.

Second and third grades would return Jan. 19, and fourth and fifth grades would resume in-person learning on Jan. 25, according to a release from the City and Borough of Juneau.

Schools and teachers will soon reach out to individual families with more specific details related to schedule and attendance, the release said. Distance delivery will continue to be available throughout the remainder of the school year for any student or family who chooses to stay with that option, according to the release.

Students attending school for in-person learning will need to answer a daily symptom screening checklist before leaving home, according to the release. Students and staff are required to wear masks covering the nose and mouth during the school day and visitors and families must wear masks if they enter a school and will be provided one if they don’t have their own, the release said.

According to the release, more details on in-person learning can be found at juneauschools.org under January Smart Start Plan.

Any adjustments to the schedule will be communicated during the first week of January, according to the city.
