(Jefferson County) Several school districts in Jefferson County have had to cancel on campus classes and go back to an all virtual learning option after a number of students and faculty members tested positive for COVID-19 or are on quarantine.
Jefferson R-7 is the most recent school district to announce the move. Superintendent Clint Johnston says they will go all virtual beginning Monday which will carry through Monday, November 30th.
St. Pius also switched to virtual learning this week with the expectation of having students return on Tuesday, November 17th.
De Soto and Crystal City schools are also operating all virtually at least through Monday, November 16th with the intention to reopen on Tuesday, November 17th.
However, that is subject to change depending on if more students or faculty test positive for COVID-19.
The Fox and Grandview School District’s have also had to alter their schedule due to the virus.
As of right now high school students within the Windsor School District are operating on a hybrid schedule.
