Local schools plan for classes August 19

With a green light from the state, the Elgin/New Leipzig Public School, Carson’s Roosevelt Public School and Flasher Public School all plan to begin classes within the brick-and-mortar classrooms on Wednesday, Aug. 19.

On July 14, Gov. Doug Burgum and State Superintendent Kirsten Baesler released the K-12 Smart Restart guidelines to help North Dakota school districts plan for reopening this fall.

The K-12 Smart Restart guidance requires each district’s school board to approve a Health and Safety Plan in consultation with their local public health unit. Among other requirements, the plan must identify a COVID-19 team or coordinator to oversee the district’s health and safety preparedness; protocols for social distancing; and processes for identifying and protecting children and staff at higher risk with an opportunity for continued distancing teaching and learning.
