Palo Alto Unified School District secondary students will have the option to attend school on campus for four days a week starting Tuesday, April 27.

The district’s in-person learning model — dubbed “Zoom in a Room” — puts students in the same classroom as teachers and peers, while still tuning into class through the same Zoom meetings as those who opt to learn remotely.

Since the optional return for grades 7–12 began, students have been split up into two groups alphabetically by last name, with each group having the choice of going to campus on two designated school days: either Tuesday and Wednesday, or Thursday and Friday.

This latest update, sent out in Friday’s Paly Community Update, follows district families indicating interest in having the option to go to campus Tuesday–Friday, in a recent survey.
