The Vincennes Community School Corporation announced Monday that Vincennes Lincoln High School (LHS) would be switching to virtual learning starting Tuesday, Nov. 10.
According to LHS Principal Steve Combs, the school's switch to virtual is due to the rising amount of COVID-19 cases both at the high school and within the community.
"We're at a point where the amount of students and staff we have quarantined is getting difficult to manage based on contact tracing," said Principal Combs. "I know this is not ideal. This entire school year, this entire pandemic is taxing on everyone."
As of now, LHS students can plan to return to in-person instruction on Monday, Nov. 23, but that return date is subject to change.
No other schools within the VCSC district are affected by the switch to virtual learning, as it only applies to LHS.
