Great Expectations resumes with distance learning, preps for in-person school Jan. 18

The end of the year and the return to school after winter break looks very different for our local schools. Great Expectations School resumed on January 4, 2020, with distance learning but is also preparing for a return to school in person on January 19.

Great Expectations School Director Peter James told WTIP that most of the latest Minnesota Department of Education and Minnesota Department of Health COVID-19 guidelines for schools are already in place for GES. However, there are new screening and testing protocols to be enacted.

WTIP’s Rhonda Silence checked in with Great Expectations School Director Peter James to learn more about plans at GES for the return to school and about how distance learning has been going so far.
Here’s their conversation.
