Schools in the diocese are continuing with in-person learning in K-8 schools. The diocese says it will work with schools individually, rather than issue a broad order for all schools in the Wichita metro area.
The two Wichita metro area high schools continue to operate under a hybrid model.
Students at Bishop Carroll do a daily remote-learning log for three hours on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and six hours on Wednesday. The rest of the time is spent in-person at school.
There is a group of morning students and a group of afternoon students for in-person learning.
This has been the model for all of the 2020-2021 school year. Principal Vanessa Harshberger says they will see how the second semester goes.
Kapaun Mount Carmel is operating similarly. It offers a remote-learning option, but most students follow the hybrid model of learning. Kapaun plans to do this for the remainder of the school year.
