HOLLEY – The school district will have three public meetings on Tuesday with Holley families to discuss the reopening plan for the 2020-21 school year.

Holley’s plan would have students in school for in-person learning for two days a week, while the other three days would be remote learning at home. That includes all grade levels.

Splitting the student body in half for in-person classes will allow Holley to maintain social distancing in classes with desks spaced at least 6 feet apart, which is required by the state for in-person learning during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Wednesday would be a designated day for remote learning for all students. That would allow Holley to do a “deep cleaning” of school buildings.

The parent forums on Tuesday will all be through Zoom video conferencing because the district is limited on the number of people for in-person, indoor gatherings.

The Zoom sessions will be at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. Links for the meetings will be posted on the district website.
