5 Tulare County schools receive waiver to resume in-person instruction for some grades

Parents made the request a little more than one week ago to resume in-person instruction.
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Several South Valley schools have received reopening waivers from the Tulare County Public Health Department.

Parents made the request a little more than one week ago.

On Thursday, the health department said George McCann Elementary and St. Paul's Elementary School in Visalia, St. Aloysius Catholic School in Tulare, Dinuba Junior Academy, and Porterville's St. Anne's School could resume in-person instruction for Transitional Kindergarten (T-K) through second-grade students.

Tulare County said it would consider extending waivers to other elementary schools once the county has met with state's case rate recommendation.

All schools can also reopen when a county has been out of the state's Tier 1, or purple category, for two weeks.

Currently, there are several other T-K through second-grade waivers pending approval by the county.
