Why is CBHS following a Hybrid Learning Model?
Our hybrid learning model is meant to provide five days of instruction per week to each student and decrease by half the number of students on campus daily. Teachers will provide synchronous instruction to both students on campus and students attending remotely from home.
- Our existing technology, including equipment and access to our learning management system and Microsoft Teams, enables us to both share our in-class lessons with students remotely in real-time and actively engage all students during every class period.
- The last 10-15 minutes of each period will be “offline,” allowing our students at home to break from their screens while students on campus can wrap up the period with their teachers and begin sanitizing procedures prior to moving to their next class.
What will my son's weekly schedule be in this model?
Every student has received an A-Day Schedule or B-Day Schedule assignment.
Students on the A-Day Schedule attend on campus Mondays and Thursdays and learn remotely from home on Tuesdays and Fridays. Conversely, B-Day Schedule students attend class remotely on Mondays and Thursdays and learn on campus Tuesdays and Fridays.
Wednesdays alternate between A-Day and B-Day schedules on a week-to-week basis. Refer to our school calendar for any schedule clarification.

Does my son have the option to attend school on campus all five days?
Our hybrid learning model (with half of the student body on campus at a time) provides five days of synchronous instruction each week while maximizing social distancing on campus. It is not possible at this time to allow students to attend on campus all five days. CBHS will increase the number of on-campus days for students as the COVID-19 situation in Shelby County permits.
I have more than one son attending CBHS. Will they be scheduled to attend on the same day?
Yes, our A-Day and B-Day Schedules are designed so that siblings attend school on campus the same days each week.
Will we still have advisory? What is the daily schedule?
Yes. We will operate under a “normal” daily schedule every day with 45-minute classes and an advisory period for students who are on campus, following our Bell Schedule
Wednesdays are an exception when we follow a late-start schedule with no advisory to accommodate our weekly faculty meeting. Students attend from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. on this day every week.
What is the procedure for families who choose to have their son(s) attend exclusively online?
The option for students to attend CBHS as distance learners is always available. Please contact email@example.com to explore this option further.
