Of those surveyed, 68% of parents and teachers agree that as long as safety procedures are in place, like wearing a mask, kids should be allowed back in the classroom.

Only 21% said they are okay with a hybrid approach where half the students are in school and the other half are learning online.

Over the weekend, the governor said the state is still deciding if schools will reopen in the fall.
