Northwestern Consolidated of Shelby County finalizing plans this week for reopening schools

The Northwestern Consolidated School District of Shelby County is finalizing reopening plans for Triton Central schools.


Superintendent Chris Hoke says it’s time to get kids back to school.



The superintendent says the close of the final school year amidst the coronavirus pandemic showed online learning isn’t the best tool for learning.



Hoke says masks, in most instances, will be an option, not a madate.



Final details will be assembled by the task force and school board.  More details should be released later this week.  Hoke says they will be "flexible and nimble" .
