On Monday June 29, 2020 Emmetsburg Community School District submitted its Return to Learn checklist to the Iowa Department of Education. The plan designates that ECSD will implement the Hybrid Model which will include both in person and online instruction for the 2020-2021 School Year.
We have begun to receive guidance from the Iowa Department of Education on the reopening of school in August. The initial guidance does not address social distancing within the school setting and does not require the use of face coverings at school or on buses.
ECSD will continue to work on planning for the reopening of school in August. Safety is our number one priority, however we acknowledge that limitations with social distancing exist within our school buses and buildings.
In July, ECSD will provide additional details for the Return to Learn Plan for returning to school in August. We will ask for stakeholder input during July prior to finalizing the plan at the end of July.
