Hoosac Valley Schools Preparing for April Return to Classrooms
The Hoosac Valley Regional School District is planning to have students return to the schools fully on April 5.
iBerkshires. com reports Superintendent Aaron Dean told the School Committee on Monday that his team is working quickly toward shifting from hybrid learning to full in-person learning on April 5,
Dean he said he recently released a survey to get a sense of which families would prefer to remain fully remote. He said about 90 percent of families have responded and about 85 percent of those are ready to fully return to school.
The majority of health precautions won't change and mask-wearing, hand sanitization, continued cleaning, opening windows, social distancing and other practices will still be the norm.
The plan is to space students out in classrooms at 3 feet, which is the recommendation of the World Health Organization. Dean said the preferred 6 feet is not possible.
