Mishawaka School Board unanimously approves a reopening plan
MISHAWAKA, Ind. (WNDU) - On Wednesday, the Mishawaka School Board unanimously approved a plan to bring John Young Middle School and Mishawaka High School students back for in-person learning beginning Feb. 25.
From Feb. 25 - April 1, students will be in-person four days a week, but after spring break, students will be back in the building five days a week.
Students can also choose to continue with virtual learning.
“We have always from day one focused on letting the data inform our decisions, let the medical experts help make those recommendations and this is no different...We have known all along that in-person learning in our buildings is best for kids, so we are excited to get students back,” said Kory LaBonne, Director of School Services & Assessment.
“It’s very exciting. We are thrilled to get our students back into an in-person model. We know our students learn best when they are here,” said Superintendent of School City of Mishawaka, Wayne Barker.
The district will be conferring with the health department.
This will be discussed further at the next school board meeting on Feb. 24.
