ASHLAND, Ky. (WSAZ) - Ashland Independent Schools is releasing new details about plans for the 2020-2021 school year.

In a flyer posted on the district’s website, parents will be able to make a choice for each child in the family about how they will learn in the fall.

Option 1: Traditional Learner. Under this selection, students will return to a traditional classroom setting when school resumes on August 26th.

Option 2: Virtual Learner. This option means the child will remain at home and attend school virtually with a device connected to the internet.

Both options require parents to submit their intention form online or by mail by July 24th.

If a parent wishes to switch their option, a request must be made to the principal with one week notice so that adjustments can be made.

The website also lists requirements for students before returning to a school campus. Students must check their temperature. If they ride the bus, they will practice social distancing and wear a face covering while sitting in an assigned seat.

The student must wash their hands frequently or use hand sanitizer throughout the day.
