While there have been a lot of concerns raised about the prospect of students and faculty going back to school this fall — we are just a couple weeks away from a return to learning. Students around the region will learn in a variety of ways this fall — and we’re catching up with leaders from around the region — discussing those plans.
Today, a conversation with Karen Hall, who is a principal in the Manchester Shortsville Central School District, or Red Jacket. They will be taking a hybrid approach to reopening, bringing students back on opposing days, twice a week. She says there was anxiety and concern, but even when faculty arrived for the first day — a sense of normalcy could be felt.
Now, the next major checkpoint will be welcoming students back later this month.
