    MBIT Transitions to Hybrid Instructional Model

     

    October 5, 2020

     

    Dear MBIT Students and Families:

     

    It was certainly an exciting week at Middle Bucks Institute of Technology as we welcomed our students back into the building. While everything went well with our transition to hybrid instruction, there are just a few reminders:

     

    • Students are expected to attend in-person according to their hybrid schedule or it will be considered an “unexcused absence”.

     

    • Students who need to quarantine may participate in class virtually.

     

    • Students who attend class 100% virtually are expected to participate synchronously on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and asynchronously on Wednesdays.

     

    • All students are expected to complete and submit the assignment provided by their teacher asynchronously on Wednesdays; submitting the assignment will confirm their attendance in class for the day.

     

    • Students should plan to arrive just prior to the start of class rather than earlier, to provide teachers time to prepare.

     

    • Students are asked to report directly to their program at their schedule session; no congregating in the common areas.

     

    • Families that are planning to travel are reminded to refer to the list of high risk states for Pennsylvania. See the attached website: PA Department of Health Traveler Information

     

    • Families are asked to monitor their student daily for fever or other COVID-19 symptoms.

     

    • Students who are not feeling well should stay home. Students can still participate virtually.  If a student is scheduled to attend in-person and he/she elects to stay home because of illness, the absence will be counted as “excused” upon receipt of email or phone call from parent or guardian. Parents/Guardians should email absent@mbit.org or call 215-343-2480.

     

    If you have any questions that are not addressed with this information, please email them to StudentServices@mbit.org and we will get back to you with an answer.

     

    Sincerely,

    Kathryn Strouse

    Administrative Director
