The Boaz City Schools system released its guide to reopening for the 2020-2021 school year.
The start date is Aug. 20.
Parents of children attending traditional school are not allowed to enter buildings and are encouraged to bring students to school instead of letting them ride the bus.
There will also be a virtual school option for grades K-12. Classes will follow the traditional school calendar, and the regular grading system will be used.
“Virtual learning will include rigorous instruction, high expectations of student performance, and meeting all grade-level standards,” the district's plan says.
Students doing the virtual option will be required to stay with it for at least nine weeks before having the option to transfer to traditional learning.
The district says a separate area will be set up for any person with coronavirus symptoms to be cared for. The area will be disinfected, and “students/staff will be walked out of the building from the room/area to persons driving them home,” the plan says.
