SR ready for new school year

With school starting for South Ripley students this week, the 2021-22 school re-entry plans were discussed at the July meeting of the School Board of Trustees.
“Our goal is to return to normal as possible while using common sense mitigation strategies to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” noted Superintendent Rob Moorhead. It was noted that masks will be optional during the school day. Federal mandates will require students to wear masks on buses. Supt. Moorhead will stay in contact throughout the year with Ripley County Health Officer Dr. Welsh. The plan can change as circumstances around the pandemic change.
