District Receives Additional Funds For Safer Reopening Of Schools

“In the past few weeks, our school administrators have reached out to families to get a sense of
their intentions this fall. Although the majority of students will be returning to in-class
instruction, many responses indicate a mix of in-class and remote learning preferences,”
explained Demeo. “An important goal for us is to keep each student closely connected with their
school to support their social and emotional wellness. Therefore, we intend to invest some of
these funds toward hiring staff to oversee school connection opportunities for those students not
ready to return to the classroom. Additional funding couldn’t come at a better time to put this
plan into place right away.”
