Dayton Public Schools announced Wednesday that it will reopen with regular, in-person classes for the 2020-21 academic year.

School will start one week later than originally planned, with the first day on Monday, Aug. 17, the district stated in a news release.

All students and staff will wear face coverings, provided by the district, and students and staff will  have daily temperature and symptom checks, DPS said.

Complete information about preventive measures, building sanitation plans and action plans if a student or staff member is diagnosed with COVID-19 will be shared over the next several weeks as the district’s Safe School Restart plan is rolled out, the district said.
