HALLSVILLE, Mo. (KMIZ)
The Hallsville School District will have in-person summer school classes for children as young as kindergarten in July as COVID-19 regulations continue to loosen.
The district announced in an email newsletter on Friday that it will host classes for first through eighth grade on campus starting July 13. Classes end July 31.
Kindergarten "jump start" classes will take place July 20-31, the district said.
High school students will be able to take classes online only July 13-31.
Registration will begin in June. The district warned on its website that because of state and local rules related to COVID-19 the in-class sessions will accept a limited number of students.
The return to the classroom is made possible by a relaxing of local rules that will begin May 26 and the expiration of a statewide reopening order at the end of the month. Boone County's COVID-19 restrictions on the number of people inside a building at one time will be eased throughout the summer.
Some districts, such as Columbia Public Schools, have chosen to have summer classes online-only, citing the rules in place to limit the spread of COVID-19.
