It will be a first day of school like no other, but Williamson kids are going back to classes on Aug. 7.
Williamson County Schools reopening framework offers two options for students this fall — on compus and online. Williamson County parent opinions were taken into account in creating the reopening framework, and many parents wanted their kids to return to school while others were hesitant due to COVID-19.
Kids going back physically will have daily temperature checks, experience social distancing, and be required to wear face masks. The return to school physically is based upon a metric that WCS added in June to determine the feasibility of on-campus school versus remote learning. The metric measures the spread of COVID-19 by tracking active cases in Williamson County. Currently, the rate of spread in Wiliamson is "low." Should the spread increase to 1% or higher, the current framework will be revised again and remote school will be started for all students.
