The Luxemburg-Casco Schools are moving forward with a plan to open the academic year in-person masked up. Over 80 percent of parents surveyed recently by the school district felt somewhat or very comfortable sending their children to school. According to Superintendent Glenn Schlender, an overwhelming majority of the staff also felt comfortable returning to the classrooms. The administrative team, along with the school board and nursing staff, developed a preliminary return-to-school plan.
Schlender says parents who opt for having their children participate virtually will have to do so in real-time. The Luxemburg-Casco School District also approved a requirement for all staff and students to wear face coverings when social distancing is not possible. Schlender also added that over 70 percent of parents said they could bring their child to school, alleviating a busing issue.
