LI schools may start to allow students to return in larger numbers as COVID-19 cases hold steady
As COVID-19 cases continue to stay steady on Long Island, school districts may soon allow more students to return to the classroom.
Westbury School District Superintendent Eudes Budhai says that letting students come back to school depends on COVID-19 data, especially considering the school doesn't have the capacity to bring all students back at one time.
The schools in the Westbury School District are currently hybrid, which is a mix of in-person and remote learning.
Budhai, along with other district officials, say the goal is to return to in-person learning fully.
School districts have a list of guidelines on their websites that outline the protocols for in-person learning including daily health screenings before a child come back to school.
