Full-time classroom learning planned this fall
Gladstone schools anticipate a full return to classroom learning this fall, as an increasing number of adults and teens receive COVID-19 vaccines.

To maintain student safety, schools will maximize outdoor air flow by boosting ventilation systems this summer. They will also follow state COVID-19 safety guidelines to protect student health and minimize spread of the disease.

Handbooks detail hybrid in-person learning health procedures

It includes links to some kid-friendly videos that help parents prepare students for their return to the classroom.
