Henderson County Schools is moving to Plan B. The school board voted unanimously Tuesday to phase students back into the classroom.
“Right now, our schools are safe,” Superintendent Bo Caldwell said.
Henderson County school and health officials said COVID-19 numbers are good enough for in-person learning.
“I’ll be voting for Plan B today because I think things have changed,” one board member said.
The county’s average of new daily cases per 100,000 people has dropped from 27.7 in July to 6.8 now.
“Physicians agreed that if we were under 10 that they were very comfortable with the school system entering Plan B,” county health director Steve Smith said.
