Another Tri-State school system will start remote learning Thursday morning due to COVID issues.

Union County Schools alerted parents on Wednesday that the school system would transition to remote learning due to the rising number of COVID issues in the county.  According to the text, close to 100 students and staff members within the system continue to quarantine due to contacts and exposures with COVID.

This included 4 athletic teams, an entire food service staff of one school, and the entire technology department.

In the text, they announced that the remote learning will take place from November 12th to Thanksiving Break.  Currently, the school system plans on returning to hybrid learning on Monday, November 30th but, will re-evaluate data before then to confirm if they can keep that date.

Free curbside meals to all elementary schools will continue. 

For the athletic department, activities for the winter sports teams have been termporarily suspended.  The Football team is still set to begin postseason play next Friday.  The team is being asked to continue to follow CDC guidelines of masking and social distancing.

We're going to be looking out for another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs should peak in the mid to high 90s with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 105°. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. By that time there is a good potential of some rainfall and storms picking up across the Tri-State. There is a chance we could see some severe weather develop with these storms. We'll start to see relief return Friday afternoon into Saturday.
