With a push by Governor Kate Brown for some students to be back in class, the Banks School District is planning for some form of return to in-person education. Some details remain undecided, in flux or dependent on COVID-19 metrics, and the fate of school sports remains uncertain.
Parents and students took to the streets in Banks twice in January to push for in-person learning and for a return to some form of school athletics, gathering in front of district offices on Monday, Jan. 11 and on Main Street on Friday, Jan. 22 to ask Gov. Brown to allow student athletes to resume sports.
