Plans change for West Salem School District ahead of school year

First two weeks will be held virtually

WEST SALEM, Wis. (WKBT) – The West Salem School District is revising their plans for the upcoming school year.

During the Board of Education meeting on Monday, district officials decided to hold only the first two weeks of classes virtually.

Then students would transition to in-person learning.

Late last month, the district was planning to hold the first 30 days online.

Since then, the Coulee COVID-19 Compass was removed from use in La Crosse County.

And while there is a new plan in place district officials realize that plan may change again.

“We’re going to have to be flexible with the fluid situations that are going on. And just pay attention to how the health situation, the health staus of our community is doing,” said West Salem School District superintendent Ryan Rieber.

Like other schools, face masks and social distancing will be enforced at schools.
