- Secondary students (middle and high school) will attend classes online on Mondays
- Elementary school students will attend fact to face every other Monday until 11:30 a.m.
- Extracurricular activities will be allowed to have two spectators beginning Monday October 12th, other spectators will not be allowed to come watch.
At least some parents are going to be able to watch their kids play sports and do extracurricular activities. The goal of the school district according to the news release is to keep from having to go to the Red protocol level and keep students and staff as safe as possible.
Staff and students are required to wear a face covering in the buildings except while eating and other instances where social distancing can be maintained. You can read the full "orange" plan here.
