The Catholic School Bard has modified their secondary timetable to reduce the number of direct and indirect contacts between students.

The move comes after further consultation with the Ministry of Education.

The board says that rather than attending school in the morning for two periods as previously reported, students will now attend for one 225 minute period.

Staggered and scheduled breaks will be provided throughout the morning classroom period.

Students will still be divided into two cohorts, follow a “quadmestered” schedule, and follow an alternating schedule every other week (period one in the first week, period two in the second week rather than two periods in one day). Rather than have two 40-minute synchronous and asynchronous learning periods in the afternoon, we will now have one 75-minute period.

Starting dates for secondary students have changed depending on which cohort students have been placed in. Orientation dates have been added for each cohort. Cohort A and B are returning to school. Cohort C denotes students with Special Needs.

The new plan can be found on page 6 of the opening school guidelines.
