South Callaway school district announces plans for fall 2020
COLUMBIA — South Callaway School District superintendent Kevin Hillman announced on Wednesday plans for the upcoming semester.
As of now, the district plans to return to in person classes.
"It'll be far different from what it looked like before," Hillman said.
Some of the adjustments being made are the sanitizing procedures, water bottle fill stations instead of water fountains and social distancing requirements in the cafeteria.
According to Hillman, in-person classes are "plan A".
District officials are closely monitoring the pandemic and will adjust as needed with various backup plans, like as reducing campus capacity to 50%.
"We certainly know from last year that anything can happen," Hillman said.
The school district worked with the county to install cameras in the school that monitor student's temperature throughout the day. Any student with a fever will be asked to leave school for the day.
If parents do not feel comfortable sending their child to school, they are given the option to enroll their student in distance learning.
"Most of our feedback has been good from parents," Hillman said.
