The Alabama State Department of Education recently issued detailed guidelines for schools as they begin to reopen and allow students back on campus.

Phase 3 of the reopening plan began June 1, when limited access to campus facilities for summer learning opportunities and extracurricular activities was given to students in grades seven-12 under social distancing and heightened sanitation restrictions.

Phase 4, which will give younger students the same access as upperclassmen, is scheduled for July 6.

The planned return to school for the 2020-2021 academic year – Phase 5 – is set for August.

I think that everyone is already tired of studying at home and wants to go to school as before, an excellent plan, only while it is difficult to judge how safe it is. I think that perhaps it would be worth being isolated. In this case, the student can be helped by the service, this service makes it easier to cope with more complex tasks. But this is only my opinion of course.
