(De Soto) Starting on Monday, October 5th, the De Soto School District will be switching to a 4 day school week.
The district is getting ready to finish it’s fourth week of class in which it has offered two options to students, on campus learning 5 days a week or all virtual learning.
De Soto schools Superintendent Dr. Josh Isaacson says the idea of changing the school week was brought up by teachers and other administrators.
The 4-day school weeks mean there will be no in-person classes and no virtual instructional learning on Monday’s.
With that being said, Isaacson adds that doesn’t mean students will have a off day.
The modified school week was approved by the De Soto School Board of Education during a special meeting on Tuesday.
The 4-day school week will be implemented through the remainder of the first semester which ends in mid January.
