Central Schools will be returning to distance learning after meeting with the COVID-19 Regional Support Team assigned to the district. Due to the increase in cases at the school, the idea is to conduct a “reset” to allow the infections to decrease.

The plan is to begin full distance learning once again on Nov. 18 and continue to do so until after Winter Break, returning on Jan. 4. According to a press release from district superintendent Timothy Schochenmaier, it is being recommended to continue distance learning two weeks after New Year’s to due family gatherings through the holidays. The district plans to keep parents updated on the plan until then.

Specific schedules will be communicated through school principals, but here’s a rundown of the district:

• Nov. 12 – Last day of in-person/hybrid learning for all students, P-12

• Nov. 13-17 - transition days, as per the order by Gov. Walz.

• Nov. 18-Dec. 22 - Distance Learning for all students

• Dec. 23 - transition day, as per the order by Gov. Walz.

• Dec. 27 - Mr. Schochenmaier consults with regional support team and communicates to parents

*Jan. 4, 2021 - Tentative return date back to hybrid model
