The district encourages parents to prepare for a return to face-to-face learning by:
“School will look and feel different when students return, and it is important that families talk to their children about how they can help keep their classmates and teachers safe,” said Superintendent Gist. “While we are working on creating as much safe distance as possible during the school day, it is unlikely that we can provide the recommended distance. We need everyone in our school buildings to wear their masks and we need students and adults who respect each other’s personal space as much as possible during the school day. “
