    Transportation survey update, updated CDC guidance

    The District is continuing to work to find ways to expand in-person learning for students this school year if at all possible. To address the issue of transportation, district leaders are analyzing the results of the district-wide survey parents and guardians were asked to complete last month. We also are working to find solutions to other barriers related to classroom capacity and physical distancing requirements.
