After hearing the Governor’s School Reopening Recommendations, the St. Mary’s Area School District finalized their back to school plans. On Monday night, the School Board voted unanimously to provide both full time in person classes and remote learning. Superintendent of the School District Brian Toth says 90% of Parents chose to send their kids back to school full time for in person classes. He says this plan has been in the works since May and though he wishes the Governor would’ve made the recommendations earlier, there wasn’t any rush.
Toth says they will dedicate 10 staff members full time to take care of the remote learners. He says precautions will be in place to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus including requiring Students and Staff to wear masks, although Toth says Students who have a medical condition will not be required to wear a mask.
