Based on data and guidance from the Marion County Public Health Department, Indianapolis Public Schools will move forward with a phased-in return to in-person learning starting Tuesday, Jan. 19. The Marion County Public Health Department has recently shifted their framework for school operations which can be found here.
Here’s the timeline for returning to in-person learning:
Week of Tuesday, Jan. 19 – Friday, Jan. 22
Note: Schools are closed Monday, Jan. 18, in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
- Students in Grades Pre-K–3 return for full in-person learning.
- Students in Grades 4–12 remain on full remote learning.
Week of Jan. 25
- Students in Grades Pre-K–6 (except for 6th-graders on a middle school schedule) return for full in-person learning.
- Students in Grades 7-12 (this includes 6th-graders on a middle school schedule) return for in-person learning on a hybrid schedule.
*Families who would like to change to remote learning can still do so by contacting their school directly.
The hybrid learning model will be the same as the Fall for students in Grades 7-12:
Note: 6th-graders on a middle school schedule will follow the hybrid model.
- Students whose last names start with A-K will attend Monday and Tuesday. They will participate in remote learning Wednesday – Friday.
- Students whose last names start with L-Z will attend Thursday and Friday. They will participate in remote learning Monday – Wednesday.
- Wednesday will be a remote learning day for all students on the hybrid model.
