Clayton: We can’t social distance throughout the entire school day

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- The superintendent of the Warren County School District said during a radio interview Wednesday morning that social distancing won’t be feasible throughout the entire school day.

“It’s not possible to do that,” said Rob Clayton during an interview on the Tony Rose Morning Show. “That’s why we have the face coverings and we are going to ensure our students follow that.”

Yet, Clayton also said that parents should realize that not every individual in the district’s schools will be wearing a face covering.

“There will be medical exemptions for some potential staff and students,” he said.

Warren County parents have been given the option to either send their child back to school for in-person classes or keep them at home to learn through a virtual academy.

“We can’t replicate the quality in the classroom through a virtual format, but again, they (parents) can trust us to provide a virtual learning experience that does have high quality,” Clayton said.

Clayton went on to say that the district is doing everything it can to mitigate the spread of the virus.
