Yankton Students Won’t See “School As Usual” This Fall

May 31, 2020 | ,

(KVHT) – As you might expect, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, students returning to classes across the state will not see school as usual this fall. Last week the Yankton School District began asking for feedback from parents on their vision for the 2020-2021 school year in case the community experiences another wave of COVID-19. The survey asks five questions and it addresses concerns parents may have related to local rates of COVID-19 infections in Yankton, as well as varying responses the district could take in case of a surge in Coronavirus cases during the new school year. The survey is accessible to parents through today – June 1st. Superintendent Wayne Kindle states that currently the school year is set to begin on August 24th – he adds however, that due to the Coronavirus outbreak that starting date and how the school year starts may look different than in the past. Kindle says the focus will be on student well-being, student education and providing meals for students. This spring, South Dakota’s public schools closed down in mid-March on the recommendation of Governor Kristi Noem to give the state time to prepare for an anticipated surge in cases.
