As cases of COVID-19 continue to increase across the area another Sequoyah County School has decided to push back their school start date.
Vian Public Schools announced Friday that they "have decided to delay the start of the school year."
The first day of school for Vian students will now be August 24. Teachers will report August 17.
On Thursday the school announced that they have been collaborating with local health professionals to "create a plan that will allow school to resume safely for students and teachers." Parents and families are encouraged to read the plan together and discuss the educational options that are available to each student.
"Our goal is to keep safety first during this challenging time. We are confident that our Wolverine Pride will continue to grow as we work together to stay healthy and return to school together," officials stated.
If you have questions, concerns, or would like more information, you can call the office of your child’s school between the hours of 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. each weekday.
The school is currently working to create Purple/Gold rotation lists that will be shared with families soon.
