AMORY, Miss. (WTVA) -- The Amory School District is moving ahead with bringing students back to school next month.
Grey Gypsy Tanning business owner and mother Deanna Williams said some parents have no choice but to send their children back to school.
“I can bring him to work with me; there’s a lot of people that can't do that,” said Williams.
She says for that reason schools should reopen in August.
However, she’s not sure if that means risking the safety of children.
“I guess it’s just trial and error at this point they're going to have to test and see what works,” said Williams.
According to the Amory School District put on Twitter, there are new safety measures in place to try out.
Administrators asked parents to screen their children before leaving home every morning and also wait for them to be screen once they arrive to school.
They also asked students to wear a mask that complies with the school dress code.
However, Williams having a child of her own says that could be a difficult task for small children.
“There’s no way that he’s wearing a mask all day, I don’t mean that in any other way other than it would be almost impossible,” said Williams.
Guidelines on how children will attend school lunches and transportation are also different.
The Amory School District’s website also states it could change the plan for reopening.
