WOODLAND — Woodland Public Schools announced that all students will transition to either hybrid schedules or full in-person learning over the coming weeks.

District officials stated that the transition to in-person learning was made possible thanks to the dedicated efforts of the Woodland and Ariel communities in reducing the spread of the COVID-19 novel coronavirus.
