(Cambria-Friesland) The Cambria-Friesland School District will offer both in-person and virtual learning options this fall, as well as some outdoor instruction. The school board recently adopted the back to school plan that will see school buildings open five-days a week with in-person teaching. Parents who want their kids to learn at a distance can sign up for virtual learning.
Grades K-through-five will utilize the online program Edgenuity while grades six-through-12 will be on Odysseyware. District Administrator Tim Raymond says both programs are supported by state certified instructors and school staff will monitor and provide academic assistance. He says virtual learners can participate in all Cambria-Friesland athletic and co-curricular events. The district also plans to set up areas surrounding the school to accommodate outdoor learning for the first couple months of the year.
Cambria-Friesland will be providing three facemasks to students and staff. Raymond says the district has adopted a situational facemask policy where staff will require students – at times – to wear one. He says if proper social distancing can be attained or learning is moved outdoors, face coverings may be removed.
Parents will not be able to wait outside the building before or after school. Doors will open at 7:55am with dismissal planned for 2:45pm. More information can be found on the school’s website.
