HUTCHINSON, Kan. — The Hutchinson USD 308 School Board will go over a grant application that would provide funds for the district to implement a test-to-stay program in the district when they meet this evening.
Several smaller districts in the area already have such a program in place, but it has proven to be costly and difficult to do in larger schools.
The program allows students who have been exposed to COVID-19 to stay in school if they get tested each day. Such a program can help students stay in school even if they may have come in contact with someone who is COVID-positive.
Also this evening, the board will go into executive session to discuss the latest negotiations with the district's teachers and approve a memorandum of understanding with both Salthawk Community Services and Rise Up Reno.
This evening's meeting begins at 6 p.m. at the HMS-8 library.
