The Carroll Community School District is asking parents and students to put upcoming open houses on their calendar.
The open houses will be held at the district’s school buildings, and the school has not released recommendations about wearing masks or social distancing during the events.
“It is likely we will have some adjustments and more details about open houses later,” Carroll Schools Superintendent Casey Berlau said Thursday morning.
Elementary Principal Patrick Rabbitt added Friday, "We haven't made any sound decisions yet on this at the elementary level. Our MTSS (Multi-Tiered System of Supports) leadership team is meeting next week to gather thoughts, opinions, ideas and suggestions around the many things we have to consider as we move ahead with our planning in the next few weeks."
The open house details are as follows:
— Fairview Elementary School, preschool: 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 27. This is a come-and-go event inviting parents and students to visit their classrooms and drop off school supplies.
— Fairview Elementary School, kindergarten through second grade: 4:30 to 7:15 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 20. Students and parents can bring in school supplies and lunch money.
