CARLSBAD, Calif. (KGTV) -- Carlsbad Unified says secondary students will return to classrooms next week on a hybrid learning schedule.

The school district said a limited number of seventh, ninth and tenth graders will return to schools Tuesday with a 2-day per week hybrid schedule officially starting on Thursday, when the county is expected to be in the red tier.

After the district's waiver for in-person learning was denied this week, CUSD submitted an additional request to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) to bring back students to campus in smaller groups while San Diego County was still in the purple tier.

State health leaders relaxed some thresholds Friday for moving to less-restrictive tiers on the state reopening system after California met its goal of administering 2 million vaccine doses in hard-hit communities.

CUSD said the following will be implemented during the week of March 15:
