NCSD giving parents the option to choose digital or in-person learning
CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Natrona County School District will open its doors for students to attend in the summer and fall if parents choose.
According to the smart start reopening plan, temperature checks need to be completed at home, but NCSD will provide masks for students in the schools.
“This would be utilized under the current health orders through July 31 in situations where social distancing can’t be maintained,” said Tanya Southerland, NCSD public relations officer.
If parents want to keep their kids on a digital learning platform, NCSD will be offering a different program than they did in the spring.
“Everybody did their absolute best they could with the quick transition. We are incredibly proud of everyone who adapted. We know that option wasn’t ideal,” Southerland said.
She added they are still preparing for a safe and healthy year.
“We are working to make sure we have all of the information we need so students and families are safe and healthy while we continue planning,” Southerland said.
She added they are keeping a close watch on state health orders.
Teachers are required to hold a summer school option that starts Monday, July 27.
