In a statement on its website, Green Dot Public Schools said, “Recent studies and local data indicate that schools are not the primary source of COVID spread (with the exception of sports).” The site goes on to say, “We believe in science. If the current spike does not subside, we may have to continue Distance Learning semester two. We will continue to engage our advisory groups and plan to host a series of community meetings to hear from each of you.”
