“Back To School” Monday For Rochester Public Schools
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - There will be a lot of smiles in Rochester Monday on the faces of school kids, parents and teachers.
Rochester Public Schools will resume in-class learning Monday after a two-week distance model.
Interim Superintendent Kent Pekel has been emphatic the last few days about the resumption of classes.
RPS decided to shut down schools earlier this month due to elevated covid activity in the community.
RPS says the decision was based primarily on the impact the virus was having on staff, not students.
At the time, Pekel said, “Two weeks allows all sick students and staff and those who have been exposed and are incubating the virus to progress to being non-infectious by the time school resumes.”
