“Our number one goal for this year has been to provide the safest educational environment possible for our students and staff,” Dettwiller said in the statement. “We are no longer able to meet that goal while operating under our traditional in-person learning model. In order to meet this goal, we must transition to our Blended Learning Plan.”
