Sixth-graders at Carson Valley and Pau-Wa-Lu middle schools will go back to full in-person learning starting Monday.
The grades were split into cadres, attending school one day and distance learning the next.
Douglas County School Board trustees authorized allowing sixth-graders back in school on Monday morning.
The sixth-grade students will be the first full-time students at the two Valley middle schools.
Students in grades 7 and up will continue to attend school in a hybrid in-person and online model for now, Superintendent Keith Lewis said.
Trustees also permitted Lewis to move forward with changes to the district’s reopening plan as needed, under guidelines established by the governor.
“I’m working closely with our secondary administrators to determine what additional grade levels may be able to return to a full ‘In-Person’ learning model as well,” Lewis said Monday. We will update our students and families as soon as possible, with a target date of March 8 for any other grade levels to return.”
