Due to the cold weather, the first day of hybrid learning in Roswell public schools has been postponed until Thursday.

Elementary hybrid group A was to start in-person learning Tuesday, but now will not be in their classrooms until Monday, Mike Gottlieb, Roswell Independent School District Superintendent said. Instead, Tuesday will be a remote learning day for all students, as will Wednesday.

Elementary group B students will have in-person learning on Thursday and Friday as scheduled.

Sixth-grade and ninth-grade orientations will also be Thursday and Friday. Those students in A group will be in their new schools on Thursday and B group students on Friday.

Regular hybrid learning will begin Monday for all grades.

Gottlieb said buses were not able to start in Monday’s extreme cold temperatures.

“The diesel (fuel) has completely gelled. They worked for about four hours (Monday) trying to get them started,” Gottlieb said.
