CROWN POINT — The Crown Point Community School Corp. plans to have students back in school full-time this fall, Superintendent Todd Terrill said.

In a message to parents and families earlier this month, Terrill said he expects to have in-person learning on a normal schedule five days a week.

"Like everything else this year, changes in COVID could impact this decision, but it is our goal that we will return to a full in-person learning experience for all of our students," he said.

The school leader noted distance learning could be used in the event of inclement weather, "or to meet other educational needs," but will not be implemented every Wednesday, as it has been during the 2020-2021 school year.

Terrill also acknowledged the challenges of this year.

"This year has not been easy for anyone. Navigating COVID and its constant changes has placed a burden on every family, every staff member and teacher, and every student," he said.

Terrill added opportunities for virtual learning next school year only will include part of the district's high school credit acceleration program, or services for students with specific medical needs, which will be addressed addressed through the school corporation's Department of Exceptional Education.

When it comes to masks, contact tracing and other protocols for the coming school year, Terrill said the district anticipates the Indiana State Department of Health will provide updated guidance as the summer goes on.

Prior to the start of the school year, the district said it will provide families with an update on changes, as well as continue to update information on its COVID resource page at
