School Trustees have reviewed and discussed how to address their priority to get students back to school in our current risk category. Board members and central office officials have previously stated their commitment to provide some form of in-person instruction.
Board members discussed the importance of safety, particularly for faculty and staff. Although not required, the Board is highly encouraging masks. Trustee Darin Moon emphasized that decisions were not political statements. “Following guidelines and recommendations puts us all in a safer position.”
Dr. Shank has repeated the desire to get students back into school, “ we will have school unless we are told we cannot.”
We have heightened safety and cleaning measures in place and are positioning to work through new operating procedures. We need the community to help us in our efforts to stay open. Student learning and overall safety are our priorities.
