Park County School District #6 to Remain Closed this Spring
Written by Andrew-Rossi on April 30, 2020
No Cody students are going back to school this spring.
Yesterday, Interim Superintendent Peg Monteith confirmed that Park County School District No. 6 school buildings will remain closed through the end of the current school year. This decision was announced after the latest amendments to Governor Gordon’s public health orders were announced this week. There was no statewide determination for schools to close, State Superintendent Jillian Balow leaving that decision to each individual district. Several other Wyoming districts had already announced their closure.
The plan moving forward is to keep things the way they are. The Adapted Learning Plan the district has adopted since its closure back in March – mainly involving online education – will continue through the remainder of the school year. That date hasn’t changed, and the last day of school for students is Thursday, May 28. Every school district in the state must submit a reopening plan to be evaluated by the state and local health officers before students can start going to school again. That plan will now be formulated with Fall 2020 in mind.
There is a plan for some semblance of a graduation event for the Class of 2020, but as of now no plans have been finalized.
