BACK TO SCHOOL: Karen Hall discusses reopening plan in Red Jacket (podcast)

Editor’s Note: Over the next two weeks FingerLakes1.com will be going one-on-one with district leaders from around the region. Auburn, Canandaigua, Victor, and many others will be included in an ongoing dialogue about reopening schools. Click here if you’d like to see past episodes and additional districts.


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.
