Coeur d'Alene public schools are turning to a hybrid model to open the school year next month.
The CdA Board of Trustees voted to delay the start of the school year to September 14th with some in-person instruction and some remote instruction.
Under the model, students will attend school in person two consecutive days during a week, and go to remote instruction the other three school days.
Students with last names begin with A-K attending class in person on Mondays and Tuesdays and the L-Z groups attending on Thursdays and Fridays. Coeur d'Alene schools says it can accommodate families with children that have different last names so they can remain on the same schedule.
