D161 school board pushes decision on possible hybrid reopening to Feb. 1 meeting

To reopen or not to reopen? That remains the question for the Flossmoor School District 161 Board of Education.

During a special meeting Monday, Jan. 25, the school board opted to delay making the call regarding a possible Feb. 16 return to in-person learning under a hybrid model for students in the district whose families choose it. The board is planning to revisit the issue on Monday, Feb. 1, but some members said they are ready to make the call after several months of analyzing the possibility from different angles as COVID-19 numbers have fluctuated . . .
