VLA to Hybrid Lottery Process for Grades K-6

At the October 12th, 2020 PLSD Board of Education Meeting, the Board determined that hybrid students (Cohorts A & B) will return to full in-person learning Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday beginning on November 16th. Wednesday will remain a virtual learning day for the remainder of the semester for these students.

The administration and the Board also decided to allow full-time VLA students the opportunity to apply for a return to the face to face model based on space and availability by grade/building. While we understand the original commitment to the VLA program was for a full year, we are trying to accommodate families that are struggling with the full virtual setting.  This will be the only opportunity for you to apply for your student to return to face to face learning.

In order to be fair to all parties requesting consideration to return to face to face learning, a lottery will be held for any spots available by grade/building. In order to be considered, you must submit an application for each student you are requesting consideration for. A list of available spots for each grade/building is listed below.

If your student is a full-time VLA student and you would like for them to be considered for the face to face lottery, please complete the following application: 

VLA to Hybrid Lottery Application

The application will be open from Monday, October 19th from 9:00 AM to Friday, October 23rd at 4:00 PM. No late application will be considered.  

If you wish for your student to remain in the VLA program for the remainder of the school year, no additional action is needed. 

We appreciate your time and understanding as we try to be as fair and equitable to all of our PLSD families as possible.
