Debbie Mulholland holds a picket sign during a sit-in at the Davis School District offices in Farmington on Tuesday. Parents and students protested the district’s hybrid schedule of online and in-person learning, with some expressing their desire to return to in-person learning five days a week. Some parents argue hybrid learning creates inequities for students. “Our kids have had the longest summer of their lives. What they want is to go back to school,” said protest organizer Corinne Johnson in a statement. Davis School Board members approved a hybrid schedule to start the year with the intent of minimizing the health risks of COVID-19.
