Kiel Area School District’s Board of Education held a special meeting Friday afternoon, June 4 at which it decided in essence to return all school buildings and facilities to pre-COVID settings.
A motion was made to “rescind the return to school plan and allow the district administrator to implement any emergency rules as necessary related to public health.”
District Administrator Dr. Brad Ebert said in an email issued after the meeting, “This means that at this time, all school buildings/facilities will return to a normal, pre-COVID school setting.”
He added, “In regards to implementing emergency rules as necessary, I will continue to communicate and work with health officials as well as the Board of Education.
“The Board of Education members asked me to share that they are grateful for the work and efforts of all staff, students, parents and community members in following the protocols to ensure that we were able to keep our schools open during this time.
“The success of this school year is an example of what can happen when a school and community work together in the best interest of our kids.”
