On Sunday morning, the district announced that students attending Sequoyah Middle School in Riverdale will be required to learn remotely starting Monday, May 10.
The announcement marks the fourth school in the past two weeks where COVID outbreaks have forced changes.
Channel 2 action news reported last week that the county would also be moving students from Callaway, Harper and Morrow Elementary to distance learning. The four schools will remain in “distance learning” until the end of the school year on May 25th.
The district also says they will continue to follow their safety protocols for disinfecting classrooms and other parts of the school that may be affected.
The district nutrition department has also suspended the catering operation at Sequoyah Middle which they say has also served students and families at Harper Elementary, another affected school until further notice.
They are asking students and families to attend Riverside, Riverside Middle or Riverside Elementary School May 10-11 as they develop a plan for those affected by the Sequoyah decision.
School officials also say there will be no bus stop service for families in the community around these schools until further notice. They are asking those affected by the decision to use the driving service at Riverside Schools.
