HUTCHINSON, Kan. (KSNW) – USD 308 Hutchinson said the district is moving from its current in-person instructional model to hybrid learning for all students starting Monday, October 5, due to a significant increase in confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the area.
The district said they are going hybrid to reduce class sizes that will allow for better social distancing and to avoid having to go to full remote learning.
Group A will be students with last names starting with A through L, and Group B is students with last names starting with M through Z.
