The 2021-22 school year begins August 26 for the Sioux Falls School District (SFSD) with the hope of once again having in-person learning. And as we are once again seeing an uptick in COVID cases, the school district is not ruling out the possibility of returning to protocols and practices previously outlined in the 2020-21 Return to Learn (R2L) Plan.

It is not required that students and staff have the COVID-19 vaccine.
