Calif. creates pathway for elementary schools – even in Valley – to reopen

California health officials have released guidelines that would allow elementary schools to reopen their campuses for in-person classes if they apply for a waiver.

Public and private grade schools serving kids in transitional kindergarten, kindergarten, or first through sixth-grade classes can request the waiver.

The state will consider waivers for schools in counties on the state’s monitoring list if they meet a list of criteria set by the California Department of Public Health.
