LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) —Schools all over Greater Lafayette are planning social distancing rules while inside school building.
Classrooms will now be set up with student and teacher safety in mind. The Lafayette School Corporation is now tackling how they promote social distancing in the hallways.
Superintendent Les Huddle and team have been working vigorously to provide a safe environment inside their buildings for students who have chosen in-person learning when the fall semester starts.
One of the changes you'll see as a student includes how passing periods are conducted.
"There are some suggestions of shortening the passing periods," said Huddle. "What we have to figure out is how to get kids from point A to point B and do the least amount of socializing as possible."
Lafayette School Corporation's first day back to school is Thursday, August 20. Students and families in the district have been given the option to do their learning in-person or online.
