Due to a rapid increase in positive cases of Covid-19 across the district and the many staff and students out on a quarantine protocol, we will be transitioning to full-time remote learning for all students in all schools beginning today, Monday, November 16th. This will include the 4 blended learning days next week and the 12 blended learning days between Thanksgiving break and winter break. As of now, in-person (blended) learning will resume on Tuesday, January 5th. The Board of Education will reevaluate the 7 blended learning days from January 5th to January 14th at the December 14th Board of Education meeting. The goal of this difficult decision is to stop the rapid spread of the virus within our schools, help to mitigate the spread in our community and our region, and most importantly, to do whatever we can to keep our students and our staff safe.
