CENTREVILLE, Md. — Some students at Wye River Upper School in Queen Anne's County returned for the start of in-person classes on Monday.

The school gave their students the option this year to attend in-person classes on a rotating schedule or remain online full-time.

“As we track the cases and positivity rates in the counties from which we draw, we’ll decide whether to expand to having in-person instruction up to three days a week or cut back to all remote,” said School President Dave Mullen.

Desks are set up six-feet apart and students and teachers are required to wear masks. The school says each classroom has a UV and HEPA air filter, and undergoes deep cleaning nightly.

In between classes, the school says students and staff are told to sanitize while hall and stairways have been designed for one-way foot traffic.

As far as sports, the school's fall soccer program has been postponed, however students can still participate in running, yoga and fitness.
