"... There are times when families are provided notice of a school transition to remote learning the evening before the change takes effect".

As of Monday, Nov. 9, all in-person students at Forest Hills Central and Eastern high schools and Northern Hills Middle, Central Middle and Eastern Middle have switched to the hybrid model through Thanksgiving.

Deputy superintendent Duke Bradley said teachers and principals had been clear about the "relative successes" and stressors of hybrid instruction, including the "complexity" of managing both virtual and hybrid classes.

"A lot of the school district work, of course, is done at the county level, and the state level is participating in the conversations", said Dr. Eric France, Colorado's Chief Medical Officer at the Department of Public Health and Environment. "For anyone who might still feel concerned about it, sort of a long runway of time to adjust". All district schools will be remote Monday, Nov. 23, and Tuesday, Nov. 24.

Grand Rapids Public Schools - District decided October 19 to continue its all-virtual model through the end of the semester.

The Blue Valley school district will transition older students back to online-only classes on November 30 as the Kansas City region reports record COVID-19 cases.

Some school districts in the Hudson Valley are talking about the possibility of going fully-remote with coronavirus cases on the rise and the holiday travel season right around the corner.

While the number of actual positive cases has remained low, Superintendent Scott Smith said the number of students and staff required to quarantine for 14 days now accounts for almost 99% of absences at the high school. "The risk of the general population in the school becoming infected because of these cases is low". Every school south of the Broad River had more students attending hybrid classes than the district average.

Schools will finish out their high school football season, but spectators will be limited to 175 people. Those families and staff members impacted by these clusters will be hearing from Pitkin County Public Health on Friday or over the weekend, as well as possibly your building level administrators.

"We have done everything we can up to this point to maintain our normal operations", Dennis said.

Northridge and Syracuse high schools began temporary periods of all-online classes last week and will resume in-person on November 18 and 19, respectively.

"At the middle and high schools, we have seen a marked increase in absenteeism due to the number of students and staff who are COVID-19 positive, need to quarantine due to being a close contact of a positive COVID-19 case, or just simply have elected to learn at home", district spokeswoman Erica Loiacono wrote in making the announcement on the district website.
