LAWTON, Iowa (KTIV) -- Students could see some big changes when they return to school this fall.

Some area schools are in the process of making decisions on certain restrictions, but they are still far from solidifying them. And some parents still wonder about the "what-ifs."

Right now, school officials can simply guarantee that discussions on the matter are taking place daily.

"We have a leadership group that we get together and discuss these things. And it always seems like somebody brings something very very good to the table. So we're formulating plans for the return to school," said Lawton-Bronson Superintendent and Elementary School Principal Chad Shook.

As for what those plans might look like, school leaders are still trying to figure out what will be best for students' health and education.

"The conversations we're having around masks have more to do with when are they needed and when are they not needed. What does that look like?," said Shook.

The main takeaway school leaders want the community to get is that these discussions are happening every day, with every aspect of daily school life being taken into consideration.

"Every school administrator, superintendent, principal that I know definitely has the health and welfare of their students, staff and community at the forefront of what they do. And we don't have all the answers, but we're sure working hard to get them," said Shook.
