I write to share that we had a COVID case in the summer school program today. I primarily share it as a means to provide a few thoughts about the fall since we have heard of some questions.
We will certainly have a full in-person return to school with normal operations as the theme in most environments including transportation and lunch. The state continues to share that as the message with the caveat that masks may be required at the younger grades. The Commissioner shared that his office is working with DPH to review the recent CDC guidance and provide us any updates. The rest of the summer will include a review of any remaining COVID protocols around illness, etc. We will have that ready as August comes and be sure it is shared ahead of time. If you have any questions before then, please reach out to the building or district leaders.
Have a great night!
