Union Grove Elementary announces fall plans, includes in-person learning with a virtual learning option

Union Grove Elementary School

Students will be able to return to school this fall at Union Grove Elementary School, with face masks required when social distancing is not possible.

UNION GROVE — The Union Grove Elementary School announced its back-to-school plans Tuesday, which includes an in-person learning option as well as a virtual option.

In-person learning will be five days a week for 4K through eighth grade students and will require face coverings when social distancing is not possible, according to the district’s announcement. The school will have supplies for anyone in need of a face covering. If a student is unable to wear a face covering due to health issues, documentation from a doctor indicating such will be required.

The plan for the virtual option is still being finalized, according to the announcement, but will allow students to learn from home without a face covering.

“We will continue to use all of our resources available to make the best decisions for our district,” the announcement said. “The health and safety of our students, staff, and families are of the utmost importance to us. We hope to continue to have the support and understanding of our community during this very difficult process.”

The announcement, made on the district’s Facebook page and website, said further details of the fluid plan will be shared with families by Friday.

Plans vary by district

School districts across Racine County have announced varied plans for when school is supposed to begin in fall.

For the first quarter, Racine Unified students will be learning entirely virtually.

The Burlington Area School District Board voted for students to return to school Aug. 17 using a hybrid model, with face masks required. Students in 4K through sixth grade will return to school full-time to alleviate child care issues. Those in grades seven through 12 will attend in-person classes two days per week, with two groups attending on alternating days.

On days they aren’t in school, BASD students will learn virtually. Wednesdays will be a virtual day for all older students, giving time for the building to be sanitized.

Union Grove High School plans to bring students back for in-person classes five days per week this fall, with face masks required.

Siena Catholic Schools is expected to have a virtual option, but is hoping to have in-person classes this fall.
