ORLANDO, Fla. – This upcoming semester will be unlike any other parents, students and teachers have experienced before due to the challenges caused by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Come fall, many students will continue learning from their home while others will return to a physical classroom likely wearing masks and practicing social distancing.
Given the uncertainties of 2020-2021 academic year, News 6 hosted a town hall where those impacted by school reopenings can submit their questions.
The Reopening Schools: Your Questions Answered town hall took place from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Aug. 3 and featured local experts, including a doctor and school district decision makers.
