~ Press release issued by Page County Public Schools on Dec. 4
This is a very important message from Page County Public Schools:
Over the past few weeks we have been closely monitoring COVID-19 data and its impact on our schools and community. In recent days, the number of cases has increased in the community.
While student COVID cases and quarantines across the school division is low, our staff absences due to the virus are significantly starting to impact our ability to sustain our in-person instructional model.
School staff and administration have worked creatively to substitute for colleagues leveraging all of our resources. We expect additional staff absences over the next few weeks to increase, and we will not have the substitutes available to cover sufficiently.
Therefore, we are making a short-term change, wherein Page County Public Schools will go FULL REMOTE for the next two weeks.
After that we will all take time to celebrate the [holiday] season with our two-week winter holiday break.
Schools will be putting out announcements regarding pick-ups for instructional materials.
Announcements regarding food delivery and athletics will be forthcoming.
