VERONA, NY -As the number of positive covid cases decreases, and more people become vaccinated, the possibility of returning kids physically to the classroom is becoming a reality.
The VVS school district held a virtual town hall Monday to discuss their plans to return students to in-person learning and how they plan to keep them, and faculty members safe.
Starting Monday, March 22, middle and high school students wishing to return to in-person learning can do so. They'll be able to attend classes for 4 days. Wednesdays would remain a fully remote learning day.
Everyone will be required to wear facemasks when they can't maintain a social distance of 6 feet from each other.
The district says they will continue to provide students with the necessary equipment for virtual learning if they need it.
"Our goal was to return our students to in-person learning as soon as we could safely do so,” said VVS superintendent Martha Group.
“We're not all the way there, but we are certainly making progress. Our plan for increasing the hybrid learning for our middle and high school students to 4 days of in-person instruction beginning on March 22, is a part of that goal"
The superintendent also says the school district will be offering a vaccine clinic to faculty and staff this Wednesday at VVS.
