Blevins to Implement Schedule Change

By Superintendent Stephanie Dixon, Blevins Schools, 10/14/20 4:58 PM

BLEVINS – Blevins School Superintendent has released the following statement on a pending update to a coming schedule change:

Blevins School District will be implementing a new schedule change, for both elementary and high school students. We feel this change will be beneficial for our school family. The district will transition to a blended learning model on Fridays, beginning Friday, October 23rd through December 18th.

As a result of staff feedback, Blevins School District is implementing this change to assist the staff with the added responsibilities this year due to the pandemic. This time on Friday will allow teachers to better prepare for both onsite and offsite students. These blended learning Fridays will provide students with the choice of learning from home (virtual) or school (onsite). Students who choose to learn from home on Fridays will not be counted absent as long as their daily work is completed through the Learning Management System (LMS). Instruction for blended learning Fridays will be 100% virtual for all students, whether they choose to learn from home or from school. Onsite learning will continue Monday-Thursday.

We will continue to provide onsite instruction every Friday to those students who need or want to attend school. Buses will continue to run their regular routes and times. School meals will be served for onsite and offsite students. Offsite students will have the option to sign up for lunch and breakfast pickup. Please contact Ashley Dunham at ashley.dunham@blevinshornets.org or 870-874-2801 to sign up for school meal pickup on Fridays.

As always, your continued support is appreciated!


Stephanie Dixon, Superintendent
