GRISWOLD – The Griswold School Board will take action on requiring students to learn in person unless they or another person in their household has a medical condition during its Jan. 18 meeting, according to the agenda.
School officials had been seeing low COVID numbers last month, and because of that decided to consider requiring students to learn in person, unless there was a medical reason they could not, and if the COVID numbers stayed low.
The board agreed that it’s better for students to learn in person, and Superintendent Dave Henrichs said last month in a letter to parents, staff, students and community members three elementary students, nine middle school/high school students and 10 staff members had positive COVID tests since the school year started.
The board will consider continuing to monitor the COVID impact on the school through mid-January, and requiring students to return to in person learning on Feb. 1 “unless a note from a medical professional is provided to the district which states a student should not return to school due to either a personal medical condition or a medical condition of someone who residents in the household.”
The board will also hold a public hearing on the calendar for 2021-22 school year at 6 p.m. during the meeting.
The meeting is scheduled for Jan. 18 at 5:30 p.m. in the conference room.
