Hardin ISD will start classes on August 13th, for all students, however, there is a caveat, school will start virtually on August 13th. Students will be allowed to return to school face-to-face September 1, 2020. For the remainder of the school year, Hardin ISD, like all districts across the state, will offer families two options for the upcoming school year: face-to face classroom learning or virtual remote at-home learning. In-person operations will look different. Hardin ISD’s goal will be for the school day to look and feel as normal as possible, but there will be noticeable changes. All students in grades 3-12 and school personnel will be required to wear a mask. Teachers and staff will be required to self-screen each day when reporting to each campus. The remote model will include teacher-led instruction, teacher-student engagement opportunities, and required daily check-ins/progress for attendance purposes.
