RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) — Students at Rutland City Public Schools will be back for in-person classes on Monday following a week of remote instruction post-Thanksgiving but officials are warning students and parents that could change without much warning.
“Please keep in mind that shifting conditions or a COVID-19 case brought into the school community always creates the possibility that we may have to shift to remote learning or quarantine individuals, groups, whole schools, or even the entire district,” said Superintendent Bill Olsen in letter on Thursday to the schools community.
He asked the community to consider the guidance from the state Health Department and Education Agency in order to keep schools safe, healthy and open, WCAX-TV reported.
“Screenings on COVID-like symptoms and restricted travel help to stop the spread of the virus into school buildings. The new Executive Order restricting multi-household social gatherings is meant for the same purpose,” he said.
