Students in the Dawson Springs Independent Schools District in Dawson Springs, Kentucky, will be learning virtually for the time being.
DSISD Superintendent Larry Whalen says starting Wednesday, Sept. 8, all students will begin learning virtually through at least Friday, Sept. 10.
For now, Supt. Whalen says the plan is for students to return back to the classroom on Monday, Sept. 13, but that the situation could change at a moment's notice.
According to Supt. Whalen, the decision to switch to virtual learning was made due to illness within the district, which he says is a mixture of COVID-19 and other sicknesses.
The district will provide meal packs for the rest of the week, with breakfasts and lunches available for pickup between the elementary and middle/high school from 11:00 a.m. - noon.
