HOLLAND PATENT, N.Y. – Holland Patent Central School district is one of many leaning toward a hybrid learning system this fall.

The district held two meetings Tuesday to speak with parents about reopening options, and get some feedback.

Superintendent Jason Evangelist also answered questions about the district plans to handle state mandates, and spoke about what students can expect when the school year starts.

At least 50 parents attended the meetings, which were held in Trenton and Floyd.

Anne Marie Pearo, who has one child in elementary and another in middle school, says she is grateful for the hard work the district is doing to make sure they’re following the safety guidelines.

Some of the changes coming to the schools are:

-Mandatory health screenings

-Socially distant desks

-Mandatory mask-wearing (Unless on a mask break)

"We are following the safety guidelines from the department of health from the new york state education department to make sure that we have a plan in place to meet students' needs," said Superintendent Jason Evangelist.

Parents acknowledging the district's work with putting this plan together.

“I think we need to give a lot of credit for the teachers and administrators. Jason Evangelist did a wonderful job. I think its super, super important that we give credit, because this is so hard and they're doing a wonderful job, they really are,” said Pearo.

Schools must have plans submitted to the state for review and approval by this Friday, July 31.
