Auburn Public Schools Releases Fall Back to School Plan

by | Aug 3, 2020

In a statement released this weekend, Auburn Public Schools Superintendent Casey Handfield provided a summary of Auburn’s return to school plan.

“Based on a long and exhaustive review of medical information…family survey responses, discussions with various stakeholders, and the low rates of transmission, reported cases, and hospitalizations across the state and in Auburn at this time, we have concluded that a cautious, phased reentry to in-person schooling makes sense.” said Handfield in a statement.

The plan allows for both a hybrid schooling option as well as a remote learning option.

According to the statement, no decision has yet been made on before and after school care programs.

“We continue to evaluate if we can operate these programs safely within the regulations set forth by the state. We hope to have more information no later than August 10th.” reads the statement.
