MCSD planning for second half of school year in the spring

COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - Muscogee County School District officials are planning ahead for the second half of the school year this spring.

Superintendent Dr. David Lewis said parents have until Dec. 8 before noon to submit any changes they want to make to how their child learns this spring so that the district can plan accordingly.

The district will continue to offer the choice model, which allows for either all in-person or virtual learning. Lewis said these learning preferences will be for the rest of the 2020-2021 school year.

“They now know what virtual looks like and what our in-person is so, we’re planning to ask them their declarations and only exceptions,” said Lewis. “If they’re happy with what they have right now, they don’t have to make any changes.”

Parents can contact their child’s school directly if they wish to makes changes by Dec. 8.

The school district has also announced early release days beginning Dec. 22.

Students will be released two and a half hours ahead of their regular schedule on the following days:

  • Tuesday, Dec.22, 2020
  • Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2021
  • Tuesday, March 16, 2021
  • Thursday, April 15, 2021
  • Friday, May 21, 2021

All students will have access to transportation as regularly provided and will have school lunch prior to dismissal.
