In the social distancing world, the number of teams was reduced to 13.

Wellington school board to hold special meeting Thursday on whether to implement full-time schedule

by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The Wellington school board will hold a special meeting Thursday to determine whether or not to go full time with the students.

By a 6-1 vote on Monday (board member Carol Hadorn opposing), the board has decided to gather input from the teachers, parents and the Sumner County Health Department to determine whether to nix the school opening hybrid plan in which half of the students participate in the morning and half go in the afternoon. Instead, the board appears to be migrating toward having the students go full time with the option of online remote learning.

The quick three-night turnaround is by no accident. The board wants to give the parents a firm decision. There was discussion about whether or not to wait and make the change at the nine-week period. But some board members, especially Tom Henning, said the decision to move to full-time needs to be made ASAP.
