Duluth elementary students return at half capacity

Created: September 22, 2020 12:12 PM

You may have noticed more school buses around Duluth this week. That's because for the first time in months, Duluth Public Schools welcomed students through their doors on Monday.

Monday was day one of in-person hybrid learning for elementary students after two weeks of distance learning for all. Students are divited into two groups to keep schools and busses at 50 percent capacity. One group attends Monday and Tuesday, while the other attends Thursday and Friday. The rest of the time, they participate in distance lerning.

Elementary school parents also have the option of keeping their students home for distance learning only.

The older kids in the district will remain in the distance learning model for now.
