On Monday, the Henderson County Schools District released new re-entry guidance for students and staff members preparing for the upcoming school year.
Students will make a full return to in-person instruction on Wednesday, Aug. 11, under the district's new "Healthy at School Guidelines."
Under the Healthy at School Guidelines, masks won't be required but will remain optional for all students and staff. HCS says it will strongly encourage mask-wearing while on the school bus, but that it won't be required either.
As for social distancing, the district's new plan says three feet of distance will be practiced to the greatest extent possible.
The district's Healthy at School plan outlines other safety practices like frequent sanitation and proper handwashing.
