NFDL School District Lays Out Plans For Return To In-Person Learning

The School District of North Fond du Lac is laying out their plans for returning students to the classroom full time. Superintendent of Schools Aaron Sadoff tells KFIZ News that the first group of students in the district to return to the classroom will do so in mid-February.   

“We’re going to have our elementary school back four days a week starting on the 16th of February. And then starting on March 1st, we’re going to have our 6-12 (grades) four days a week and then on the 15th of March we’re going to have everybody back five days a week. That’s going to be new, we don’t know how things are going to be working, what things are going to be like and why we’re bringing the elementary a little bit earlier is that in our elementary school, we’re still going to be able to cohort these groups together while we also do some things to reduce class sizes.”   

Sadoff explains that the plan for a return to the classroom full time is dependent on different variables related to the coronavirus – including staff availability, infection rates, and availability of the vaccine – in addition to guidance from local and state health departments. North Fond du Lac students are still currently in the “fluid” model of instruction.
