Lamar County Plans for School Reopening

WDAM continues sharing updates on Mississippi schools reopening.

The Lamar County School Board has voted on a proposed plan to reopen schools in the fall.

Superintendent Tess Smith said the proposed plan includes several changes, such as encouraging masks on school buses, having at home temperature checks before coming to school and trying to social distance as much as possible.

“We recommend they wear a mask when they are in motion or close contact with each other,” Smith said. “We’re going to make every effort to socially distance while in the building. Doing that through traffic flow, not eating in the cafeteria, maintain student groups as much as possible to keep the contact down.”

The district is also offering at home learning options for those who choose to not return.

The district will be sending out detailed information to parents and staff this week.
