After midnight Thursday, The Rocklin Unified School District voted to have a hybrid start to the school year.

The hybrid schedule calls for some days at school and some days of at-home online learning. There will not be five days of consecutive in-class learning.

More details will be discussed before school starts August 12.

ROCKLIN, Calif. (KTXL) — The Rocklin Unified School District held a meeting Wednesday night on their plans for the upcoming school year and what it will look like to bring kids back to campus amid a pandemic.

With Rocklin schools slated to open in just over a month and with different opinions on how to do so, the school board had a lot to take in at Wednesday’s meeting, which heard more than a hundred public comments from parents and students alike.

“Anything less than full, in-person learning puts my grades, credit and learning in jeopardy.”

“I urge you to open RUSD schools with a hybrid model and not with 100% of the students on school campuses at the same time.”

“Our district must do all that it can to plan and mitigate the risks that we know we’re coming in to keep our schools running as smoothly and consistently as possible.”

The meeting was still ongoing when this story was published late Wednesday night.
