Students in the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District won't be returning to the classroom this school year.

District officials made the announcement in a statement released Friday after San Luis Obispo County released its draft plan for lifting stay-at-home orders.

"The reopening of school will be in Phase Two which won't start until at least 30 days after Phase One is initiated. Since that hasn't happened, we know now for certain we will not be allowed to reopen regular school this year," said superintendent Dr. Curt Dubost.

The school district says distance learning will continue through at least June 4. Special education and other summer programs will also be conducted online.
