JC Schools kicks off summer school with new COVID-19 guidance

COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)

JC Schools students are headed back to the classrooms Monday morning for summer school under new COVID-19 guidance.

Masks are still required in school buildings but they're not required outside.

Social distancing is still being enforced inside classrooms.

Students will now be able to leave their primary classrooms for art, music and library instruction. However, students are expected to stay in their groups.

Classroom and equipment will be sanitized between classes.

The district says its re-entry plan was based around guidance from Missouri Department of Elementary & Secondary Education (DESE) and Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services (DHSS).

Summer school will run every Monday through Thursday until July 1.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided at no cost.

  1. They just can’t let it go. They can’t surrender all that power to force people to do things because of COVID. The evidence that all the restrictions have little to no effect on results is ever growing, but those handed at times illegal power refuse to follow the science if it decreases their power. What would it take for them to publicly stand up and say “We have no more need to regulate your behavior because of COVID”? The utter elimination of all existence of viruses? It is especially egregious when applied to school age children, who are at little to no risk from the virus, and have been repeatedly shown not to be a significant vector for transmission.
