Are you confused about Hybrid and Virtual Learning schedules? Do you wonder what the new terms that you have been hearing mean? Are you worried about how we will be working to keep your children safe?
Check out this slide show with information from Ms. Campbell.
Last week we introduced an opt-in hybrid option for parents. Almost immediately thereafter, the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) released updated data that deemed Richland County to be at the Medium risk level for COVID-19. Per our original plan, a transition to Phase 2 (Hybrid) follows the designation of the district to Medium risk. Therefore, we are delighted to announce that we are now able to move fully to the Hybrid phase with a staggered start. This means we will abandon the opt-in process that was announced last week. Parents of students who are in the Phase-In Model and want them to remain in the Phase-In Model do not need to complete any forms for their children to transition to Phase 2.
Beginning Monday, October 26, students in pre-kindergarten through grade 2 will return for face-to-face instruction on an AA/BB model as outlined in our Reopening of Schools Guide. Schools will communicate the A or B cohort assignments of students and other pertinent information to parents.
Beginning Wednesday, November 4, students in grades 3-12 will begin the hybrid phase with Wednesday, November 4, 2020 as a flex day (small group instruction, office hours, etc.).
Students in Cohort B will report to schools on Thursday, November 5 and Friday, November 6.
Students in Cohort A will report to school on Monday, November 9 and Tuesday, November 10.
Schools will send additional information to parents, including A and B day assignments and other details about the transition to Phase 2. Information also will be posted on the Restart Strong landing page on our website (www.richlandone.org/restartstrong) under Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).
Thank you again for your patience and understanding during this transition. As we have stated numerous times since we first shared our Reopening of Schools Plan, we will continue to monitor and adjust our plan based on science and circumstances.

It is with great pride and excitement that I, Janet Campbell, greet you as the newly appointed Principal of Burnside Elementary School for the 2020-2021 school year. I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than twenty four years and I am eager to continue my journey as a Burnside Bee. My Vision for Burnside is to be “Intentional with Every Child, Every Day” working together with parents, teachers, staff and stakeholders in being responsible for the academic learning, safety and emotional growth of our students. Partnered with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established by Burnside by building strong relationships with parents, students and community partners.
As your Principal, it is important to me that when teachers, students, parents and our stakeholders step through the doors of Burnside they are excited to be here! This attitude enables usto meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. I want to keep communication open to you, for I welcome your input. It is with a strong commitment that I am joining Burnside Elementary and I am looking forward to leading and learning together with you as a community to meet their goals and have a successful school year!
