The Fairfield School District met with parents virtually to map out what the return to the classroom could look like this fall.
The district held an online forum last night.
Gov. Lamont says students still have the option of distance learning.
The district revealed its plan for students who would like to head back to the classroom.
The plan covered everything from masks and cleaning to what will be done if the virus spikes.
High schools have a hybrid option that feature a combination of both in-person and distance learning.
Parents were able to share their concerns and asked questions during the forum.
Many families say they're worried about what they will do about child care if their children don't go back to school full time.
A few of the highlights include:
-Students being spaced at least 3 feet apart inside the classroom.
-Cohorts, meaning classes will stick to themselves, and mainly for the younger grades.
-Lunch will be eaten in the classroom.
-Students with food allergies can eat in the cafeteria though.
-Masks are required in the classroom and at recess, but not during PE.
-There will be mask breaks.
-Parents are expected to take their childrens' temperatures at home before coming  to school.
-If a child tests positive for COVID-19, their parents must notify the school principal and nurse.
-The nurse will notify the students' cohort and the health department.
