Should Andover move quickly to return children to in-person class? Interim Superintendent Claudia Bach recently announced plans to resume in-person classes for kindergartners and first-graders four days a week. Her plan still must be approved by the School Committee. Bach did so the same day the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued guidance to schools on how to safely return children to the classroom without necessarily vaccinating teachers for COVID-19. Andover’s schools now teach students in a “hybrid” model of some in-person and some remote learning, with the exception of students whose families elect an all-remote option. (A smaller cohort of students attend schools four days a week.) Should the schools move more quickly to return kids to class?
