Students will take part in one of three options:
- Traditional in-classroom learning "with health and safety procedures in place" which was scheduled to start Monday, Aug. 10
- Virtual School: Full-time online instruction at home
- Transitional Distance Learning Model: Full-time online instruction/livestreamed lessons at home
Last month, Superintendent David Moore said 22 percent of families opted for some form of online instruction.
Friday is the last day for parents who chose a virtual learning option for their child to pick up laptops or exchange them. This is taking place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Vero Beach High School and Sebastian River High School.
