MSD reveals ideas for 2020-21 school year

MEDFORD, Ore. — The Medford School District unveiled a rough draft plan for school this Fall in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

MSD school superintendent, Bret Champion, hosted a zoom meeting with parents Tuesday night.

Champion says one concern around students coming onto campuses in the Fall is 6-foot social distancing.

He says elementary students wouldn’t have to wear masks but it’s recommended 6-12th graders wear them. Some staff will be required to wear masks.

“We’re trying to keep our cohorts together as much as possible as well per classroom. We will have a lot more details in mid-July,” Champion said over Zoom.

He says one goal will be to keep the amount of people in school buildings as low as possible.
