School Re-Openings Around the County (Aired: August 5, 2020)

Our friends at Sonoma West publishers are a unique local resource. For years, they produced newspapers that reflected life in the towns of Cloverdale, Healdsburg, Windsor and West Sonoma County. Now only the Healdsburg paper continues in print, while the others live as digital information sources. 

At NorCal Public Media, we’re partnering with Sonoma West to take advantage of their unparalleled expertise and access. For example, when we wanted to find out about the current state of school re-openings, we knew exactly who to ask.  

From Katherine Minkiewicz, Zoë Strickland, and Heather Bailey, here’s a round robin update on Sonoma County schools in their respective coverage areas.
