A letter was sent to parents at Missoula’s Sentinel High School from school officials, Missoula County Public Schools and the Missoula City County Health Department about a student with a confirmed case of COVID 19.
Watching the COVID 19 case numbers from the County Health Department carefully, Missoula County Public School Superintendent Rob Watson has determined that the safest way to start the school year is in Phase 2, or the Hybrid method.
As of Monday, MCPS Superintendent Rob Watson said that the plan for the upcoming school year is to hold traditional in-person classes in the city’s 18 public schools, taking into consideration all health department guidelines.
After announcing that churches, then stores, bars, taverns and restaurants would be allowed to open over a two week period, Governor Bullock then lifted the order to close the state’s schools as of May 7.
With MCPS students out of school for an additional week after Spring Break, there have been some questions about how families who depend on free or reduced fee breakfast and lunch will still be served.
Missoula School District One is preparing to launch its strategic planning process and is asking the public’s help in determining the direction the district should go to best serve the community and its students
