Diamond Makes “News Week”


Simon Burke, Reporter, Writer

Administrators at Diamond, East Newton, Neosho, and Seneca have announced last week that quarantined students no longer have to be quarantined and can come back to in-person learning. District superintendents have negotiated with their county’s health department to draft guidelines for new rules and regulations for continuing the in-person learning experience. The article stated that “students who have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for Coronavirus can continue to attend school and school activities as long as they wear a mask and social distance.”

Schools are working very hard to maintain guidelines during this time. As times are changing, administrators are finding ways to allow students to have an easy and accessible education that they think will be best for their students. Plans have been made and many schools are ready for anything that might come during the school year.
