As of Sept. 21, high school students in the Phillips School District are now able to attend in-person classes two days a week; up from the one-day a week per high school student model that had been in place since the start of school on Sept. 1.
At the start of the school year, the district had divided the high school student body into four groups, and each group had been able to attend school in person on either Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, or Friday. Now students can attend school on either Monday and Thursday or Tuesday and Friday. For the other two days that students are not attending class in person, they virtually attend classes being taught in real time by teachers in the classroom at Phillips High School. For all students in the district, Wednesday is a day spent working independently from home on school projects.
