Pike County Schools will finish out the week with eLearning days after reporting a high number of students and staff are under quarantine.

According to Superintendent, Dr. Suzanne Blake, roughly 15% of students and staff are currently isolating at home.

However, not all of those quarantines are tied to district positives.

Superintendent Blake told 44News, that as of September 3rd, there have been less than 10 cases among students and staff at Pike County Schools since in-person learning began on August 12th.

The district made the call to do two days of eLearning after finding it difficult to operate with limited staff and substitutes.

Starting Tuesday, the students will return under a hybrid model which is part of the district's COVID-19 response plan.

There will be two groups of students. Each group will attend in-person lessons two days a week and will learn remotely for the other three days.

You can find more information about the new learning schedule on the Pike County School Corporation's website.
