Gov. Polis expects many Colorado schools open this fall

Colorado News

DENVER (AP) — Colorado Gov. Jared Polis says he expects to see many K-12 public schools open this fall in his state and elsewhere despite the coronavirus threat, though “it’s not going to look like any other school year.”

Polis tells “Fox News Sunday” that Colorado schools will likely run in a “hybrid” fashion that limits social interactions in hallways and during lunchtime, and has up to 20% of kids continue with online classes at home if that’s their parents’ preference. The Democratic governor says schools also may close periodically when “there’s an inevitable outbreak.” President Donald Trump has urged K-12 schools to reopen.
