HUTCHINSON, Kan. — USD 308 Superintendent Mike Folks clarified for parents via video the district's response to being in the red on the gating criteria as of Friday morning.

"We will be full remote in USD 308 starting Monday, October 19," Folks said. "We are following our professional and medical team's recommendations regarding full remote."

Though Folks does not know yet how long the district may be full remote, the policy will be examined at the next school board meeting.

"I am in constant communication with our board of education," Folks said. "They did direct me and our executive team last Monday night to work towards coming up with a plan to possibly bring students back in small groups. We are working on that."

The plan is due to be before the school board at its next meeting Monday, October 26.
