Remote Learning for Dewitt and St. Johns Schools
This should come as no surprise considering the fact that the coronavirus numbers are going up all over the country and all over the world for that matter.
The U.S. is adding an average of more than 74,000 new COVID-19 cases to the national total every day.
According to the Lansing State Journal, the COVID-19 pandemic is encouraging two area school districts to suspend all or some in person classes. Another district plans to continue virtual learning until at least January.
Let's take a look at the schools that are shifting to remote learning due to COVID-19 potential outbreaks:
Dewitt Public Schools. Dewitt will shift to remote learning in all of its buildings now through at least Nov. 9.
St. Johns High School. Students are learning remotely after someone tested positive for the disease. Officials moved high school instruction online through the end of this week.
East Lansing Public Schools. They started the school year online, and the district's Board of Education voted unanimously to continue virtual learning into January.
COVID-19 cases have spiked over the past couple of weeks in Michigan, including the Lansing area.
The pandemic is also affecting the Dewitt Township Police Department. They are currently limiting its capacity for service because of COVID-19. (LSJ)
