School staff returned to buildings earlier this month, but classes in the district have been virtual during the coronavirus pandemic since last March. While some parents are calling for in-person learning, others want to delay reopening until employees are vaccinated and more is done to ensure the safety of students and staff.

The district has not announced when in-person classes will begin again.
