Now that the county is back in the red tier, many are asking, when will schools reopen. Epidemiologist Dr. Fauci says he thinks it’s safe. Templeton’s family physician Dr. Warren Frankel agrees with Dr. Fauci on this point.
At a recent Paso Robles school board meeting. Trustee Chris Bausch asked superintendent Curt Dubost when schools will fully reopen. Dr. Dubost says that he believes the Paso Robles Joint Unified School District will have the students back in school full time in August.
Meanwhile, Dubost sends out a newsletter Friday indicating the district has been meeting with the teachers union and classified unions to develop plans for summer school. Generally, the classified support staff union is all for reopening The teachers union in the Paso Robles school district is still throwing up obstacles toward reopening the schools.
But, Dubost says he’s been meeting with union officials. His letter has the names of Justin Pickard and Jim Lynett on it. The letter says that they hope to have a recommendation for school board consideration at the next board meeting which will be held one week from tomorrow.
