SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (KNEP) - Schools in Scottsbluff are gearing back up in the next couple of weeks, and they are keeping the cleaning standards high. A more contagious variant of COVID, known as the Delta Virus, is spreading all throughout the United States and around the world. This can crate a concern with parents about their children going back to school. Thankfully Scottsbluff school district is keeping their cleaning standards high to prevent the spread of the virus, just like the year before.

Melissa Price, the Communications Director or Scottsbluff Public Schools, says, “ Our cleaning protocols are probably going to be very similar to what we saw last year. We have a really great custodian and maintenance team that work very hard to keep everything clean. We have electrostatic sprayers, we have water bottle fillers now in all of our buildings, and a lot of those safety protocols will still be in place this year.”

Scottsbluff public schools start up on August 19th.
