Johnstonville Elementary announced Thursday it is temporarily moving to distance learning following a positive COVID-19 test from a member of the school community.
“We have just learned that a member of the Johnstonville school community has tested positive for Covid-19. Due to privacy rights we are unable to disclose the grade level or assignment of the individual. As a result, we will follow our revised reopening plan. This means that our campus will be closed to students starting tomorrow, Jan. 8 through Jan. 18 and transition to distance learning. During this campus closure, we will be conducting a deep cleaning of the school and prepare for our reopening on Jan. 19. Chromebooks will be sent home with your students today. Teachers will be contacting their families to help ease the transition into distance learning,” read a post from Superintendent/Principal Dr. Scott Smith on the school’s Facebook page.
“If you are interested in have lunch and/or breakfast prepared for you. Please call the school by 9 a.m. and we will have the lunch and/or breakfast ready for pickup from noon through 1 p.m. Breakfast and lunch continue to be free to all children under 18.”
