CANTON — Families met with teachers and staff at Avery Elementary School Friday, making introductions and delivering supplies before students start school Monday. Cherokee County School District expects to welcome back over 40,000 students at the start of the fall semester.
The school district is starting the semester with operations nearly what they were before the coronavirus pandemic began. Like last year, masks will not be required for students and staff, though the district has said disposable masks will be available for anyone who requests them. This year, students will return to eating meals in the cafeteria, and breakfasts and lunches will still be free for students. Schools will again have assemblies, field trips and special events open to families. District officials say CCSD will continue increased cleaning and sanitizing at all school locations and will continue to provide surface and hand sanitizer spray to classrooms.
