Second Six Weeks Commitment

Second Six Weeks Commitment

Lamar CISD Parents,

We know the 2020-2021 school year has come with additional challenges, and whether your students are learning virtually or on campus, we want to thank you for your support in making this a successful school year. The District understands that as COVID-19 conditions evolve, the needs of our families may change as well. As a result, parents are able to change their students’ learning model (On-Campus or Virtual) at the end of each grading period.

A Learning Model Change Form for the second six weeks is now available in Skyward Family Access. The deadline for requesting a change in learning model for the second six weeks is Friday, Sept. 18. No changes in learning model will be accepted after Sept. 18, as the District must plan for master schedules, classroom space, virtual instruction and how to best meet the needs of our students.

Parents who would like to change their student’s learning model can use these instructions to access and submit the form in Skyward. If there is no change for your student, you do not need to submit the form. It is also important to note:

  • If you change your student’s learning model for the second six weeks, there is no guarantee that your student will have the same teacher.
  • Campuses will contact families with students transitioning from virtual to on-campus instruction to communicate safety protocols and ensure a safe return to campus.
  • All campuses will contact parents about next steps after the Sept. 18 deadline.

Overview of On-Campus Instruction:

  • All parents are expected to screen students for COVID-19 symptoms each day prior to sending them to school.
  • While the COVID-19 Risk Level is red, orange or yellow, face coverings are required for all students when in common spaces, hallways, on buses and during arrival and dismissal. Students in grades 4th-12th are also required to wear face coverings in the classroom.
  • Classroom furniture will be socially distanced as much as instructionally possible.

Overview of Virtual Instruction:

  • Virtual instruction will require students to participate in asynchronous (online without real-time interaction) and synchronous (real-time) online learning.
  • Each day, students will engage in daily lessons, activities and assignments in all classes to be marked present.
  • Each virtual student will likely need their own device and access to high-speed internet at home.

If you have questions regarding the Learning Model Change form, please contact your child’s campus.
