The Wellington School District approved a District Safety and Operation Plan in response to COVID-19 at Monday's Board of Education meeting. 

As the new school year approaches USF 353 Superintendent Adam Hatfield is making the health of students and staff a top priority. 

"The COVID-19 pandemic is still very much at the forefront of our minds as we have been planning for the 21-22 school year," said Superintendent Hatfield. "The health and safety of our staff and students continue to be a top priority."

Hatfield has met with the Sumner County Health Department and continues to meet with the school nurses and medical panel. The CDC and Kansas Department of Health and Environment have also released their guidance for K-12 schools.

Based on all of this, the Wellington School District has put together guidance and recommendations for USD 353.
