LAS VEGAS (AP) — School administrators in Las Vegas say they plan a phased return to classrooms in the coming weeks for middle and high school students in the nation's fifth-largest school district.
Schools Superintendent Jesus Jara said Wednesday that sixth- and ninth-graders and high school seniors can return beginning March 22. Grades seven, eight, 10 and 11 can return April 6.
The announcement came as teachers prepare classrooms for pre-K to third-grade students to return Monday on hybrid two-days-a-week schedules.
Instruction for the district's 315,000 students has been virtual and online since last March due to the pandemic.
