County's Middle School Forced to go Virtual Due to COVID Outbreak Among Staff

Daniel Prince

Students set to return to school on Tuesday

The omicron variant of COVID-19 is taking its toll on schools. Due to staffing issues related to COVID, both the county’s middle schools have gone to an e-learning model for the rest of this week. Jonesville Elementary/Middle School’s 6-8 graders began e-learning yesterday and will continue through tomorrow, with a plan to return to school next Tuesday, following the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

Sims Middle School announced yesterday they would do the same, shifting to a virtual learning platform today and tomorrow, with a plan to return to school on Tuesday. They noted that if parents need hotspots for internet access for e-learning, please stop by Sims Middle School between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Students must attend all live sessions and complete all work to be counted present during the e-learning time. Friday is a regularly scheduled teacher workday and Monday is the Dr. King holiday, so there is no school for students either of those days.
