School district preparing for a variety of scenarios to anticipate state of COVID-19 in August

CLINTON — Clinton Superintendent of Schools Curt Nettles spoke to Clinton Rotary members Tuesday afternoon via a Zoom meeting and explained the district currently has three options being established for the start of the fall school session.
Nettles said people are wondering what school will look like in the fall, to which he said, “I’m wondering too.”
The state board of education has not yet informed school districts and the governor’s office has not informed the state board of education.
”The powers that be don’t have definitive plans.”
“What we’re doing is discussing possibilities,” said Nettles. “I call it Plan A, Plan B and Plan C.”
Plan A, said Nettles, is the plan everyone is hoping for which is a return to school as usual in the fall, albeit with some changes.
“Realistically, I don’t know that that’s going to happen.”
Some changes have already been made, Nettles said. Rugs and soft furniture, “things that made school more like home,” have been removed for now because of issues in keeping the items clean.
