Some students in the Paso Robles Unified School District were back in the classroom Tuesday.
The TK (transitional kindergarten) and kindergarten students now back are split into morning and afternoon groups.
Between the groups of students, the district says it thoroughly cleans the classrooms.
“We’re really trying to find that compromise; sweet spot. I know we have some people who think that we should’ve come back a lot sooner. There’s some people that think that it’s premature to come back now. We believe we’ve found the sweet spot. We’re in complete compliance with the health department to be able to have a slow return start today. We’re really happy that it’s come off as smoothly as it appears to have,” said Paso Robles Unified Superintendent Dr. Curt Dubost.
The district plans to bring 1st and 2nd graders back in two weeks, 3rd-5th graders back at the end of the month, and then 6th-12th grade students are expected to return on Jan. 5.
Some special need students were able to return to the classroom in September.
