The Herkimer Central School District held a virtual forum to inform the public about it's plans to ready schools for the return of students this fall.

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.
