Muscle Shoals City Schools extends virtual learning
MUSCLE SHOALS, Ala. (WAFF) - Muscle Shoals School officials say in-person learning at their schools will continue longer than previously thought.
According to MSCS, in-person learning will resume on Friday, Jan. 21. The change is due to staffing shortages and high absenteeism as a result of rising COVID-19 cases.
“As we approach a long weekend, the transition to remote learning on Friday will provide our students and staff four days of separation to slow the spread of the virus and allow those who are currently sick time to recover,” said the school system in a statement.
Teachers will communicate expectations for learning on Friday and distribute any resources students will need for remote assignments. All MSCS faculty and staff members also may work from home on Friday.
“Remote learning may require, but is not limited to, live or recorded class sessions and completing assigned activities as grades may be taken,” said MSCS. “Enrichment activities may also be assigned to support student learning and keep students engaged academically.”
Parents should ensure their students are checking their emails and/or their respective learning platforms.
