After careful consideration, district administrators have decided that high school students can return to a four-day, in-person learning schedule on Monday, April 5.

That means Southport High and Perry Meridian High students will receive in-person instruction in the classroom on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, as long as the COVID-19 positivity rate allows. On Wednesday, students will log-in to online learning.

Students who do not return to in-person classes will receive remote learning Monday through Friday on the same schedule that classroom instruction occurs. NOTE: The hybrid schedule (two days of in-person + 3 days of online learning) is no longer an option.

If your high school student plans to switch to in-person learning, please contact the front office by Friday, March 19.

The decision for high school to return to in-person learning is based on new guidance from the Marion County Public Health Department, which allows masked students and staff to be within 3 feet of each other.

Please remember that if your child or anyone in your home is awaiting COVID-19 test results, the student should stay home until test results are received. If your student is displaying possible symptoms, please do not send them to school.

Please contact your child’s school if you have any questions.

Safety is our top priority.
