District Six understands that the needs of families are all different. Parents may not be comfortable with the idea of returning to in-person instruction yet. Our District Six Virtual Academy will provide an option that will allow students to stay at home and receive all instruction off-campus with a certified teacher.

Will students and staff be required to wear mask during the school day?
Safety is our highest priority. Masks or face shields are essential for the health and safety of our District Six community. We will provide face shields and masks for all employees. Students and staff will need to use a face covering while on the school bus, when entering the building, during transitions, leaving the building, and any time social distancing is not possible.
What is the hybrid model?
In the event of another school closure, what is the plan for students to continue distance/remote instruction?
What is the difference between distance learning and the virtual academy?
Virtual Academy - This learning model is a consistent platform for virtual instruction. Virtual Academy students will never have to switch back-and-forth between education models, even if we are advised to close a school building for safety precautions. Our virtual academy is a semester-long commitment and learning will continue with assigned teachers.
Will students have access to their own computer this year?
Due to the possibility that all students may engage in remote or online learning at some point in the school year, the district will provide laptops for students who do not have reliable access to a computer at home. We also know that not all families have reliable internet access at home. The district is exploring options for securing Wi-Fi hotspots for some of our students to ensure they have the tools they need to learn remotely.
