District gives families until Aug. 21 to decide whether in-person schooling or remote

MEDINA – The school district has scheduled three meetings next week for the community to learn about Medina’s reopening plan.

The District is planning in-person education from Monday through Friday for students in grades Pre-K through 6. Classrooms have been reconfigured to allow for maximum social distancing, said Mark Kruzynski, the district superintendent.

Students in grades 7-12 will have the option to attend school in-person every other day, alternating on Fridays. They will do remote learning when not in school, in-person.

“We simply do not have the space or staff for all students in grades 7-12 to be socially distant every day,” Krusynski said in a letter to the community on Monday.

Students identified as having higher level, disability-specific needs will be invited to attend school daily, he said.

Families have until Aug. 21 to notify the district whether their children will be attending school in-person or remotely. (Click here for more information.)
