Las Vegas, NV (KXNT) - On Thursday, the Clark County School District's Board of Trustees held their first in-person meeting since schools closed in March of last year.

The meeting was met with a protest that had hundreds of people sharing that they want schools to reopen now.

Students and parents lined up to voice their frustrations during the public comment portion. The district approved the transition plan to hybrid in-person learning on Wednesday.

Beginning on Monday, kids in Pre-K through 3rd grades will return to class two days a week and do distance learning for the remaining three. Other grades will begin to be brought back on a staggered basis March 22nd. Parents also have the option to keep their kids in distance learning full-time
