Safety measures take center stage in District 161’s fall reopening discussions

Flossmoor School District 161 knows it will be returning to in-person learning this fall. The question is how to do that as safely as possible.

Superintendent Dana Smith said guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has directly influenced the district’s reopening plan. But he told the board during its meeting Monday, July 19, that administrators are ready to adapt should additional guidance come from the Illinois Department of Public Health.
