In order to offer sustainable comprehensive support to both our in-person and remote students, we have had to make changes to both of the current Horizon Honors Elementary School Learning Options. 


Effective at the end of this semester, the current Remote Learning option will be retired. There will be two learning choices for the Spring Semester, which begins January 6, 2021:


IN-PERSON LEARNING

&

ONLINE LEARNING CLASSROOM


IN-PERSON LEARNING:

Our In-Person Learning option will continue as it did during the fall semester, with COVID-19 protocols in place. However, due to the changes to our learning programs and the need to balance class sizes, some students’ teacher assignments and/or schedules may change. We will do our best to minimize potential changes, and will notify families by December 18 of any updates. If In-Person Learners must be absent for an extended period of time for quarantine, etc. students may be allowed to temporarily attend their in-person classes remotely. 


ONLINE LEARNING CLASSROOM:
Horizon Honors Schools is partnering with a school district based in Florida to deliver the Florida Virtual School curriculum specifically designed for Elementary School online learners. Classes will be supervised by Horizon Honors teachers and students will receive individual class placement for core subjects. However, no Band or Choir classes will be offered. More details about the Online Learning Classroom, including technology requirements, can be found HERE.

 

LEARNING CHOICE SELECTION:

All Horizon Honors Elementary School students must confirm their learning choice by completing THIS FORM no later than November 23, 2020. A semester-long commitment is required and changes cannot be made under any circumstances, as Horizon Honors Schools is incurring registration fees and other costs for each student who registers for the Online Learning Classroom. 


DEADLINE FOR SPRING SEMESTER LEARNING CHOICE REGISTRATION: MONDAY, NOVEMBER 23


PLEASE CHOOSE CAREFULLY!

No Changes Can Be Made After November 23rd!

We believe that these changes will give online classroom learners the extra attention and support they need while our in-person teachers will be able to better provide individualized attention to in-person learners. Both modified learning environments are sustainable long-term and will continue to be refined to provide the best education experience possible.
