The Lead Hill School District overcame an early issue with COVID-19 that affected many staff members to continue operating so far in the school year.
Superintendent Tami Richey joined “The Community Partyline” program Tuesday morning on BOOTZ Country and said they were able to start the school year on time despite having a number of teachers and staff quarantined due to COVID-19 concerns prior to the start of the year. Richey said they were able to cover and get the year started and currently all staff is working on site.
Richey also said the school facilities were cleaned and all surfaces were sprayed plus supplies brought in help disperse germs and all staff as well as students 10 years and older are required to wear masks though many younger students are wearing them as well.
Richey did say nearly 30% of Lead Hill Students opted for take classes virtually which has let the District keep the students on normal schedules.
