Bellevue district delays plans for in-classroom learning

BELLEVUE, Wash. (AP) — Because of rising numbers of coronavirus cases in King County, the Bellevue School District is delaying in-person learning until January. The Seattle Times reports the district is abandoning earlier plans to bring its youngest students back into classrooms in  a few weeks. So far this fall, Bellevue, which enrolls 21,000 students, was the largest district in King County to set a date for moving to in-person learning. Issaquah had also planned to start educating kindergartners and first grade students starting Thursday, but last week it, too, reversed course.
