BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. — Tens of thousands of Brevard County students returned to classrooms from winter break on Thursday.
Officials said the school district is focused on health and safety, as COVID-19 cases reach record numbers across the state.
In an email to parents Wednesday night, Superintendent Mark Mullins emphasized the district’s commitment to keeping face-to-face learning as a priority. The district is also asking for help in keeping school operations as normal as possible.
“We strongly recommend that people wear face masks, but it is an option, not a mandate, and we also want to remind people that if they are sick, to stay home from work. And if they’re a parent and their child is sick, to keep their child home from school just to make sure that sickness isn’t a COVID case,” said Russ Bruhn, chief strategic communications officer with Brevard Public Schools.
The district is also maintaining online digital learning resources for students who are temporarily out of the classroom.
