The district plans to move into Phase 1 on September 8. Phase 1 includes students going back to school for a few days a week in short sessions depending on grade level.

In Phase 2, students would go back for a half day once a week and students would be back in the classroom for one full day a week in Phase 3. Phase 4 would have students back in the classroom for two full days a week.

The moves into Phase II and beyond will be dependent on numbers of coronavirus cases.

Superintendent Dr. Mike Looney announced that class would start 100% virtual during a board meeting last week. The district had originally planned to offer both in-person and virtual learning, but pulled the plan back as COVID-19 numbers surged.
