An update on the COVID-19 situation in the Orange County area and possible reopening of schools is on the agenda for the Feb. 11 meeting of the Westminster School District Board of Trustees.

The board will meet in teleconference via “Zoom” at 6 p.m.

In December, the board voted to suspend hybrid education for elementary schools in the district and go to “distance learning” exclusively through Feb. 12. The three middle school campuses have been on an all-virtual plan.

That action presumed the likely return to the hybrid model to take place on Feb. 16, depending on the state of the coronavirus pandemic.

The WSD is a K-8 district serving most of Westminster as well as portions of nearby cities.

Dog park considered for Stanton

The possibility of creating a dog park will be discussed at Tuesday’s meeting of the Stanton City Council.

The idea was initiated by Mayor David Shawver. There are dog parks in the nearby cities of Seal Beach, Garden Grove, Cypress, La Palma and Huntington Beach.

Also on the agenda are:

  • appointments to fill three vacancies on the city planning commission;
  • future plans for the intersection of Orangewood Avenue and Santa Rosalia Street;
  • discussion regarding the establishment of a policy for traffic calming measures.

The council meet via teleconference at 6:30 p.m.
