Early Dismissal -Students will not come to school. They will attend Duval Homeroom on these days.
Option 1: Students attend school in person at the brick and mortar setting (West Riverside). Students will attend 5 days a week during regular school hours. Students in Pre-K -2nd grade will wear a face shield all day. 3rd-5th graders will wear a mask while transitioning in the halls , etc. In the classroom, they do not have to wear the mask as desk shields will be in place. For all students, regular hand washing and use of hand sanitizer will be in place. Students will need to social distance during all aspects of their school day. Temperature checks will be taken daily. Should the Health Department deem that a class or the whole school needs to close down, students will continue with their classroom teachers through Duval Homeroom. Visitors and volunteers will not be allowed in the school building. School will look different, but our goal is to do our best to make sure everyone is as safe as possible.
*Bus riders will be required to sign up/register for their stop. Students will also be required to wear a mask in order to ride.
Option 2: Students attend Duval Homeroom. This is NOT Duval Virtual Instruction Academy (DVIA). Duval Homeroom will be made up of teachers from around the region, not necessarily West Riverside teachers. This option provides parents flexibility with staying enrolled in their assigned school (West Riverside) while allowing students to learn virtually. This option is a 9 week commitment and parents have the option to go back to the assigned school at the end of each 9 weeks. The funding for teachers (FTE) stays with the child’s school (West Riverside). I know there were concerns with Duval Homeroom in the spring, but the district is working to address things such as live lessons, assigned work that encourages student growth and learning, and consistency from one classroom to another. If you elect this option, you must sign up through your FOCUS account and the form is located under Forms by July 24th. If you need help with this, please feel free to call Ms. Mann for assistance.
Option 3: Students attend Duval Virtual Instruction Academy (DVIA). This un-enrolls the student from West Riverside, BUT you can keep your magnet seat for the following year. The funding for teachers (FTE) goes to DIVA (as they are a separate school that needs to be funded). This option is a full year commitment. There is not an option to return to brick and mortar during the school year.
*Please note that with any of the virtual options it is not guaranteed that students will receive instruction specific to that magnet program.
