More Schools Reopen To 'Hybrid' Schedule In Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Students in three more grades returned to classrooms in Las Vegas, where the Clark County School District continued a phased plan to resume in-person teaching.

About 27,000 students in grades six, nine and 12 were expected to return Monday after more than a year of virtual learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic. School Superintendent Jesus Jara said the goal is for all campuses to reopen in August.

Preschoolers through third-graders returned to class March 1 with a "hybrid" two-days-per-seek schedule. The next wave of reopenings is scheduled April 6 for remaining secondary grades under the hybrid model, while elementary students will be offered a five-days-a-week schedule.
