CHICAGO — Families with children in Chicago Public Schools have until Friday to decide if they’d prefer full remote learning or a hybrid option.
The district recommends two days of in-person instruction and three days of remote learning. But there’s no final decision yet.
Parents who choose the hybrid plan can pull their children out of school and switch to remote, if they change their minds.
But anyone who chooses remote learning will have to wait until the next quarter before they can choose classroom instruction.
CPS released the following statement Monday in regards to reopening schools:
“Nothing is more important than the health and safety of our students and staff, and Chicago Public Schools won’t open its doors on September 8 if public health officials don’t deem it safe to do so. We continue to gather community feedback and closely monitor the public health data before making any final determinations for what learning will look like this fall.”Chicago Public Schools
