Call it a trial run.
The administrators, faculty and staff of the Sunflower County Consolidated School District held a first day of school simulation on Thursday morning, traveling from the central office by bus to Carver Elementary.
Each person was screened as they exited the bus. They then walked, socially distanced, to a classroom where the staff practiced a number of scenarios and then discussed situations that might arise that had not been included in the drill.
SCCSD will hold a virtual zoom community meeting on its fall re-opening plan tonight at 6 p.m.
Stakeholders will hear about the plans that the district has been making over the last few months in preparation for the 2020-2021 school year.

The district announced a couple of weeks ago that it will take a hybrid approach to launching the school year, taking elements from the different options and combining face-to-face instruction with online teaching.
The school year is set to start for half the district’s students on August 10. The other half will start the following day.
The groups are based on family and home locations.
Student Body A will report to school on Mondays and Wednesdays.
Student Body B will report to school on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
A specific segment of students from Student Body A and B will report on Fridays beginning in September, SCCSD said.
While students are away from school, they will virtually work on assignments from their on-site days and have access to virtual lessons created by their teachers.
Classrooms will be socially distanced.
