Haywood County school leaders voting to open up schools to in person learning. Monday night, the board voted to have the first day of in person classes on September 28th. Each school has been authorized to finalize their own plan. Students will attend in two groups, A and B, with a separate bus schedule for each group. Superintendent Dr. Bill Nolte said that the district will use safety precautions. He said there were more than 66-hundred responses to a survey, with almost 74 percent requesting a blended schedule of remote learning and in -person classes. The rest of the responses voted to have only remote learning.
