A Piatt County school leader is hoping for fewer restrictions on schools as they plan for a return to full in-person learning next school year.
Superintendent of Bement Schools, Dr. Sheila Greenwood is encouraged by recent guidance from the Illinois Department of Public Health regarding social gatherings and events and hopes that will trickle down to guidance for the return of school next fall.
When it comes to the COVID mitigations, Dr. Greenwood is hoping for a lessened requirement when it comes to distancing. She hopes for a return to normal school year things like field trips and assemblies.
While guidance for remote learning has not come down from the Illinois State Board of Education, Dr. Greenwood anticipates remote learning only being an option for very rare circumstances.
As guidance trickles down and districts begin to set in place their plans for next year, Dr. Greenwood encourages their community to follow them at bementschools.org. She also points out they keep their various Facebook pages up to date as well.
