RALSTON, Neb. (KMTV) - Ralston Public Schools announced Thursday that they are transitioning a different instructional level to start the school year.

District officials say they will shift to the "yellow" instructional level. That means there will be a mix of in-person school and independent learning from home.

Students would be divided into two groups and alternate days attending school. The days they are not in school, they would do independent learning from home.

There will also be enhanced health-safety precautions such as random temperature checks, no visitors in school buildings and staggered arrival and dismissal.

The district had originally planned to begin the year in the "green" instructional level with all students in school.
