The state’s largest school district is creating a plan in the event schools stay closed beyond this week. The Sioux Falls School District is also continuing to provide meals for students.
Sioux Falls Superintendent Brian Maher says the district’s primary role is the development of students.
“But right now our role has changed from an academic responsibility to a social responsibility,” he says.
Maher says this week’s closure may only be the beginning, and he encourages families to come up with a plan in the event of an extended school absence.
