足球滚球比分After voting April 8 to keep with remote learning through the rest of the school year, the Shields Valley School District Board voted unanimously Thursday to allow some seventh- to 12th-grade students back into the buildings, while following guidelines from state and local health officials.

Remote learning will still continue.

足球滚球比分Junior high/high school principal Greg sager said the partial opening is to allow students who are falling behind to try to catch up.

Gov. Steve Bullock is allowing school districts to choose whether to open May 7 with hygiene and social distancing guidelines in place.

足球滚球比分In Shields Valley, students will be allowed to come back by appointment only, and only if the teacher also volunteers to return. 

足球滚球比分In other business, the board unanimously approved a plan for an altered graduation ceremony, which Sager said would only allow for students’ immediate families, four to five people, to be in attendance, with social distancing between family groups.

Sager said he has been in contact with the Park County Health Department regarding the plan, and the department is expected to sign off on it.

足球滚球比分“The kids deserve a traditional graduation ceremony,” Sager said.

The Shields Valley High School senior class couldn’t go on senior class trip because of the coronavirus pandemic, and the school board is still deciding what to do with the money that was supposed to go to the trip, about $13,000, which is in a public account and therefore has restrictions on how it can be disbursed.

Options like a more local senior trip, a trip taken at a later date, a scholarship fund and door prizes at graduation were discussed.

足球滚球比分“We’ll do everything we can while remaining within the legality we’re restricted by” Board Chairwoman Maggie Stein said.

The matter was tabled because there hasn’t been much specific direction from the community or the senior class. Sager said he intends to have a meeting with the senior class soon to see what they want done with the money.

足球滚球比分“There’s no option here that to me makes much sense,” Trustee Cleve Swandal said. 

足球滚球比分He just wants the money to go to the kids, Swandal said.

The board also unanimously declared an unforeseen emergency through June 30.

Meanwhile, the Arrowhead School Board voted Thursday to remain closed, Park County superintendent of schools Mollie Waldum said Friday.
