RE: Virtual Learning Day - Covid 19
Due to the increase in the number of positive Covid 19 cases in our community and schools, we are experiencing a shortage of staff and will be unable to sufficiently cover all classrooms. As a result, we will be conducting a virtual learning day tomorrow, Friday, January 14. Students and staff should not report to campuses on this day. All students and staff should report back to school on Tuesday, January 18. If you have questions, please reach out to your local school.
We would also like to remind you that Monday, January 17 is a student and staff holiday in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
As always, we appreciate your continued support and cooperation. We encourage you to stay safe and healthy.
Wade Whitney, Dr.
