SUPERIOR, WI -- The Douglas County Public Health Officer says she supports the superior school district's plan to start the year with kids in the classroom.

The Superior school board heard from Kathy Ronchi Monday.

She backed their plan to start the year with a combination of in-school and distance learning.

Ronchi says just because kids are in the classroom doesn't automatically mean they'll be exposed to the Coronavirus.

She thinks students will adapt to the changes in place to keep them safe.

"Starting school with a certain expectation of behavior, of things like that. It'll become their normal pretty quickly and I think kids will do well," said Ronchi.

Ronchi says parents can help by encouraging their kids to follow rules like social distancing and wearing masks.

The School Board says they plan to send information out to parents so they know what to expect.
