Reopening Rochester schools in the pandemic doesn't call for 'concrete' plans

Fluid.  Flexible.  Nimble.  Just a few of the words used to describe school plans to reopen amidst the current coronavirus situation.


Following Monday’s special work session of the Rochester School Board that was dominated by COVID-related conversation, everything from athletics to masks and PPE for staff and students to transportation, Superintendent Jana Vance has added the phrase, “on the fly.”



Vance notes that decisions made now may not be the same ones made days or weeks from now.  And she realizes new scenarios may come to the forefront once kids return.



Good news…..registration, for the most part, will be the same.  With one key box to look for.



In a note coming up this week, Columbia Elementary will be hosting Kindergarten Roundup July 8 and 9.
