The Summit School District on Tuesday, July 21, will host a virtual town hall about returning to school for the 2020-21 school year.

The town hall will take place via video conference from 6-7 p.m. It will be led by the district’s new superintendent, Marion Smith Jr., and members of the district’s leadership team, who will discuss the district’s Restart Guide — which can be viewed at — and other elements of the district’s continued planning for the upcoming school year.

In a statement, district spokeswoman Mikki Grebetz said the purpose of the town hall is to provide updates and to have the district gather family insights and perspectives to follow up on a questionnaire sent to families in June.

Grebetz said feedback and information communicated with the district during the session will be used to inform the final recommendations to be submitted to the district’s board of education.

Spanish-language interpretation will be available for the video conference, which can be accessed at
