The Philadelphia School District has been discussing tentative plans for what do when students head back to class in the fall, which could include a hybrid in-person and online learning model, no temperature checks for students and staff, cleaning high-touch areas every four hours, and having students attend school in shifts so classrooms aren’t overcrowded.
