In person learning expansion – Safety and Health Conditions Review Team

School and district leaders have begun work on plans to expand in-person services for third through fifth grade students.  This includes resurveying family choices for hybrid or virtual learning last summer. We don’t yet have firm dates for return but do know that they will follow a similar half day AM/PM model as primary grades.  Our safety team meets weekly to review relevant local COVID data and building safety readiness.
