CDC recommends masks in public settings

AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) - River Road ISD announced today the district will require all students to attend classes in-person.

The requirement begins Monday, Oct. 19.

Public Information Officer King Hill said the district notified parents last night.

Teachers are also finding themselves stretched too thing.

If a student is quarantined due to COVID-19, the district will continue to provide services.

Hill also said parents have the option to withdraw their children from classes or other options like home schooling.
