In-person Learning Option After Labor Day
Update, August 25
Based on an assessment of current needs through existing IEP and 504 documents, MNPS will, after Labor Day, invite K-12 students who would most benefit from the in-person environment to attend school in person, starting with students who are currently placed in the most restrictive learning environment.

Wednesday, September 16: Students in district-run special day schools (Harris-Hillman, Cora Howe, Murrell)
新皇冠体育盘口Wednesday, September 23: Students with disabilities in traditional schools who participate in modified curriculum or who have significant challenges accessing virtual learning effectively.
Here are a few things to know about what in-person learning will look like for students:
Transportation for Students
Students will be picked up by MNPS special education bus drivers. Students will not be screened prior to riding the bus but will be required to wear masks, which will be provided as necessary. Parents will be asked to check students daily for symptoms prior to sending them to school via bus or other forms of transportation.
We are in the process of designating sites for in-person learning based on the number of students who opt in. Transportation will be provided to the designated school location.
Social distancing and personal protection strategies will be in place at all school locations. Staff members and students will be required to wear a facial covering or mask throughout the day, in accordance with CDC and Metro Public Health Department guidelines, when social distancing is not possible. Social distancing will be required throughout the school location.
Special education teachers and para professionals will be in person to provide services on a daily basis. At this time we don’t know if students will have the same teachers and providers as they do during virtual learning. General education content will continue to be provided virtually with Florida Virtual School. Related service providers may be in-house or virtual, depending on the needs of students.
