Wichita schools to bring more students back to class in March

The Wichita school district has announced a plan to bring more students back to in-person learning as the situation improves with the coronavirus pandemic.

The plan will involve middle schools and high schools, and it will go into effect March 1st.  Students in 6th and 12th grades will be on-site on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.  Wednesdays will continue to be remote learning.   All spring sport athletes will go back to onsite learning if they chose onsite as their preferred learning model.  Students will be required to wear masks and follow social distancing.

Starting the week of March 8th, high school freshmen will be in the classroom on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, with Wednesday as the remote learning day.

All Marshall Middle School onsite students will be on the same four-day schedule as of March 1st, with Wednesdays as a remote learning day.  This is a pilot program for all Marshall students who selected onsite learning.

Students in the middle schools and high schools have been on a hybrid model with in-person learning two days a week and remote learning the rest of the week, on a rotating schedule.

Elementary schools went back to in-person learning in January.
