Teachers, Parents Protest Washoe County School District Plan

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Dozens of teachers and parents have gathered outside of a high school in Nevada to argue against the Washoe County School District's decision to reopen schools during the coronavirus pandemic.

The demonstration was held Tuesday outside of Spanish Springs High School in Sparks, north of Reno, where the district met in-person a few days before students are expected to return on Monday.

The demonstration came after the district released a new reopening plan to help families prepare for the upcoming school year. But many teachers and parents have raised concern over the safety of the plan and how to implement it.
