FLOYD COUNTY, Ind — New Albany Floyd County Schools has given their endorsement to a reopening plan.
The school board passed the plan in a 6-1 vote Monday evening.
It includes having students and staff wear masks when social distancing is unlikely, conducting random temperature checks and asking parents to self screen their children for symptoms.
Superintendent Bradley Snyder said he knows the upcoming school year presents challenges.
“This is going to be a tough year. It's going to be a tough year for our students and a tough year for our principals, a tough year for our teachers, a tough year for our school board. So if you can find a reason to support your teachers, please do it. If you can find a reason to support your students, please do it,” he said.
Snyder and the board emphasized this is a flexible plan and changes can be made as needed.
