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.
