Earlier this week on Regional Radio News, we outlined the return to school plans for Warrensburg-Latham High School.
High school students will have blended learning start to the year including five days of in-person learning and five days of remote learning two weeks at a time, with alternating schedules. Superintendent Cheryl Warner indicates their K-5 and middle school buildings will be in school every day with an early dismissal.
Technology will play a big role in both plans for the K-8 students and high school students. According to Warner, they are working to train their teachers. They will then focus on training their students and parents on the technology components they plan to use.
Most central Illinois school districts with plans to have kids back in their buildings are implementing early dismissal times and like those districts, Warner says they are doing it to allow for extra disinfectant time in the buildings and to reduce the amount of mask-wearing for their younger kids.
