View the Red Day elementary, middle and high school plans for fully remote learning

Under the Red Learning Day Plan being recommended to start the 2020-21 school year, all Mercer Island students attend school remotely, implementing a more robust program than was offered last spring. This plan will focus on daily synchronous instruction for students through Zoom which includes extended learning blocks with teachers. There is a commitment to a consistent learning management system for students with expectations and procedures clearly defined for users. Details about the systems and platforms that we will be using will be available in the coming weeks. Please see the links below to the draft Red Learning Day Plans.

The District will re-evaluate on a three-week cycle whether we are able to begin bringing students back to our campuses. Ongoing evaluation and consultation with local health authorities will guide our decision-making as we move through the phases. We do know that once we are able to bring students in larger groups back to our buildings that we will phase in their return starting with our youngest learners first.
