Washoe County School District Votes to Stick With Reopening Plan

The Washoe County School District’s Board of Trustees have voted to stay with their initial reopening plan of schools, going against recommendations from the county’s health officer. On Tuesday, after a 9 hour meeting, the seven-person board voted to reaffirm its plans formed on July 7th, calling for elementary students to return for in-person learning, with middle and high school students on a hybrid plan – mixing in-person and distance learning. Families also have the option to do full distance learning.
