Herkimer's plan to return to school
An online community forum tonight to discuss re-opening plans.
The forum included a brief presentation about reopening guidance from the state and an overview of the options at the elementary and junior/senior high school levels for the fall.
Superintendent robert miller says these plans are based off of feedback from a parent survey that was sent out.
Miller says the district will be ready for various scenarios.
One challenge for many districts is activities where social distancing and wearing a mask are not possible.
13:26;19 13:52;07 "performance based music such as chorus and band& physical education likewise requires 12 feet of social distance and cannot be accomplished inside a school& as such band, chorus, and physical education will be offered by remote instruction until social distancing guidelines are modified."
All school re- opening plans must be submitted to the state by july 31st.
