Lowell — Based on rising numbers of COVID-19 cases and the positivity rates within Kent County in recent weeks, Lowell Middle and High schools are returning to a hybrid learning schedule beginning Monday, Nov. 2.
The plan will follow the district’s red/white schedule it had implemented temporarily at the beginning of school, where students are split into two groups and attend in-person or online classes on alternating days. This schedule will remain in place for grades 6-12 only through Nov. 24.
“It is our desire to return to full in-person learning for secondary students on Monday, Nov. 30, but we will continue to monitor and evaluate data in order to make the most informed decision possible,” the district said in a statement.
Students in grades K-5 will continue with full in-person learning during this period. All-virtual students in grades 6-12 also will not see any schedule changes.
