WATSONVILLE >> Mount Madonna School in Watsonville is leading the charge in the return to in-person learning in Santa Cruz County.
The private school returned to in-person instruction Sept. 8 with both indoor and outdoor learning spaces. It set up approximately 19 classrooms in tents outside and purchased extra school buses to create opportunities for social distancing even before the first bell rings.
“Well, certainly it’s a lot of hard work,” said Mount Madonna Head of School, Ann Goewert. “There’s lots of communication and transparency. We really went above and beyond.”
