As we all know, our state government has been taking precautionary measures regarding COVID-19 by shutting down our schools for students and today, closing restaurants for inside dining. Without question, the school closure presents a myriad of questions regarding pay, school grades, testing, etc. Currently, districts are individually deciding policies about the day to day functioning of their school systems without students. This will likely continue unless further guidance from the state government is provided. We have not heard if the closure will extend beyond this two-week period, but analyzing the events nationwide, I would say it is possible it could be extended.
The short session is scheduled to convene at the end of April. However, I suspect they will have to meet prior to that to make some immediate decisions regarding the COVID-19 outbreak. I also assume that all matters will not be addressed in one day, and this could create situations for discussion well into the year. We will keep you posted with major information as we receive it. In the meantime, stay safe and healthy.
