Hybrid Learning Plan

When Saint Philip Neri receives permission from both Alameda County and the Diocese of Oakland to offer on-campus instruction, the school will pivot from Distance Learning to a Hybrid Model. When we pivot to a hybrid model, parents may opt to continue with full distance learning.

  • In cohorts of 10-15 students
  • Each cohort on campus for 3 hours combined with 1-3 hours at home learning
  • AM cohort and PM cohort – extended care offered before and after cohorts
  • Every Wednesday is at home, remote learning
    • Faith Families
    • Community building
    • Enrichment/Club activities
    • Teacher Office hours with Distant Learning Students.
