SAN ANTONIO (July 30, 2020) – The City of San Antonio’s COVID-19 PreK-12 Consultation Group, which was invited to provide guidance to San Antonio Medical Director Dr. Junda Woo regarding the reopening of schools, invites the public to participate in a virtual town hall to discuss concerns and safety measures for the upcoming school year.
 
The virtual public meeting will take place on Wednesday, August 5th at 7 p.m.  The public is invited to watch live on the City’s website, the City’s Facebook page, channels AT&T 99, Grande 20, Spectrum 21 and digital antenna 16.1. Residents can also listen live by dialing 210-207-5555 and selecting option 1 for English or option 2 for Spanish. The meeting will feature live audience polling during the meeting.
 
On July 17, Dr. Woo issued a health directive requiring that all public and private schools not re-open for on-campus, face-to-face instruction until after September 7, 2020. 
 
During the meeting, City officials will also launch the public health indicators that the City will track regarding the re-opening of on-campus, face-to-face instruction. The indicators will serve as a guide to assess the local situation and ensure a safe and healthy environment for students, teachers, and staff at all local schools.
 
The COVID-19 PreK-12 Consultation Group, co-chaired by Dr. Woo and David Nungaray, Principal of the Bonham Academy, includes students, teachers, principals, parents, school board members, academics and pediatricians.
