ANDERSON — The Anderson Community School system has a plan for getting students back into school buildings, a place they haven't been since last March. But it's still going to be awhile.

On October 16, children in pre-k through fourth grade will return to in-person learning. Students in grades five through 12 will be on a hybrid schedule—with about half in class and the rest at home. Then the second group attends in-person classes while the first group is back home.

The hope is that by keeping building capacity down, the threat of a COVID-19 spread decreases.

The Anderson district has been in virtual learning since the start of the fall semester.
