MUNCIE — Officials in Muncie Community Schools have set aside two days for parents who want to enroll their children in person.
Each of the district’s school buildings will be open for class registration from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday and 1-6 p.m. Thursday.
The Star Press in Muncie reports that parents can choose to register students to attend school in person this fall or to take classes remotely using the district’s virtual learning program.
About 2,100 students have been registered to attend school in person this fall, while 178 have signed up for virtual learning.
The district’s fall 2019 enrollment was 4,863.
“We believe it is critical that students are enrolled in school, and we want to support our families if they feel hesitant or struggle with online forms,” said Lee Ann Kwiatkowski, the district’s chief executive. “We will be there to support them — and also if someone wants to ask questions of principals about safety and procedures in the fall.”
Social distancing protocols, sanitizer and face masks will be in place at each school during enrollment, according to the district.
Devices used for registration will be disinfected after each use.
“People will stay six feet apart, and they’re not going to be able to all go in at once, so we expect there may be a wait,” Kwiatkowski said.
