At Monday’s monthly work session, the Windom Area School Board approved the district’s finalized plans for a safe, full return to in-person learning for the 2021-22 school year.
The board discussed options for how to handle positive COVID cases, contact tracing and quarantine situations.
Supt. Wayne Wormstadt stressed that the state currently has many recommendations, but no requirements when it comes to a safe return to in-person learning.
Wormstadt said that a detailed letter is being sent to district parents, highlighting district guidelines on masking, vaccination, sickness and quarantining. The letter also sets guidelines with regards to the learning schedule, food service and extra-curricular activities.
Much more on the return to school plans appears in the Aug. 25 print edition of the Citizen.
