Dayton Public Schools to offer full in-person classes with 2-foot distancing, plus online option

Dayton Daily News |

Superintendent Elizabeth Lolli said school will start on Aug. 17, a week later than originally planned, to give the district time to train staff on health and safety guidelines. They will offer full in-person classes starting in August, with a separate online option for families that request it.

Lolli said DPS will maintain a distancing requirement of only two feet between students in their classrooms, but said students will be required to wear face coverings. The district is ordering a type of clear face shield for each student that goes on like a pair of glasses and can fit over eyeglasses.
