A statement released by Muhlenberg County Public Schools (MCPS) on Thursday said students in the district will continue learning virtually temporarily.

According to MCPS, all students will remain all-virtual from Jan. 11 through Jan. 15.

District officials say the call to remain all-virtual through Jan. 15 was made based on the high number of COVID-19 cases and quarantines currently affecting the district.

"Due to the current high numbers, it will be difficult to provide adequate staffing at each school," MCPS explained in its statement.

MCPS says its goal is to offer students the Hybrid A/B learning plan as soon as possible, and that that will be the goal each week.

Schools within the MCPS district include Bremen Elementary, Central City Elementary, Greenville Elementary, Longest Elementary, Muhlenberg South Elementary, Muhlenberg North Middle, Muhlenberg South Middle, and Muhlenberg County High School.
