HINTON, Iowa (KTIV) -- Due to the positive cases in their district, the Hinton Community School District is moving some students to a hybrid learning model.
In a press release, school officials say they are moving 7th through 12th grade classes to hybrid learning starting Sept. 28 for a minimum of two weeks. Pre-K through 6th grade will remain on-site.
The press release says the district's number of positive cases, the number of students quarantined due to close contact and other factors indicate a need to increase physical distance.
Officials say the smaller class sizes granted by the hybrid plan is the best way to limit transmission at this time.
Students will report for in-person learning on either Monday and Wednesday or on Tuesday and Thursday. Regardless of which two days a student attends class in-person, they will participate in online learning the other three days.
Any non-quarantined student may come in on Fridays for extra assistance by emailing their teacher and setting up a time to meet.
