Students in sixth and eighth grades in the South Huntington school district will have the option to return to full-time in-person classes starting April 12.
The Board of Education voted Wednesday for the option. Students can also choose the hybrid or fully remote options.
The board will meet in a special session on April 8 to examine all COVID-19 infection variables and decide whether to return additional students to full-time instruction. Any extension of plans to return to full-time classes is subject to monitoring school infection rates, community transmission and evolving CDC and Health Department guidelines.
“The Board of Education further moved that full-remote learning will remain an option with the hybrid model, subject to re-evaluation at two-week intervals, with the expectation that students are required to attend school on their in-person hybrid days,” Dr. David Bennardo, school superintendent, said.
