Parents, Guardians, Students and Staff:
This is an email we had hoped we would not have to send at any point this year.
The North Harrison Community Schools are transitioning to eLearning starting tomorrow, Friday, January 14th. We will be in eLearning all next week. We will return to in person learning on Monday, January 24th. This decision was not made easily as we recognize the enormous impact this has on our entire school community. Once we realized the challenges we were facing, we wanted to send this information as soon as we could so that families could prepare.
As the day has progressed, it has become obvious that we will not be able to adequately staff our buildings tomorrow and into next week. That is compounded by the fact that in just the last 24 hours we have seen our highest levels of quarantines and positive cases. Simply put, we are rapidly trending the wrong way. If you follow our Covid dashboard you have noted that we have largely been holding our own in terms of Covid numbers for most of the year. If you have monitored it over the last 24 hours you will have seen that our quarantines are dramatically increasing and our overall positivity is up significantly.
