Two area districts want elementary students in school full time
Two area school districts have unveiled their plans to allow elementary schools to return five days a week, while middle and high schoolers will return to buildings part of the time. .
Honeoye Falls-Lima Superintendent Gene Mancuso says middle school and high schoolers will be split into two groups that will alternate between a full week in school and a full week at home.
Meanwhile, Pittsford has announced that some of its middle and high school students will spend three days a week at home and two days in the classroom.
However, elementary school students in both districts will be back in school every day in small groups.
Mancuso says the district plans to clean the schools several times a day. Parents at HF-L can also opt to have their students of any age spend the fall semester at home if preferred.
All districts across New York State must submit reopening plans by Friday to the New York State Education Department.
Last week, the Williamson Central School District told parents and students about the plans it will submit to the state. One option is a hybrid model with two in-person days of instruction and three days of remote learning. The second option is a fully-remote model.
While no plans are final yet, parents and students alike in Williamson remain optimistic.
Williamson is still working to finalize its plans before submitting them to the state for review on Friday.
