Public health, Regional Covid team and Supt. Jon Fulton are recommending that Clinton-Graceville-Beardsley students 3 to 12th grade will begin Distance learning from Tuesday, October 27th to Thursday, November 5th. This is due to the number of students and staff currently in quarantine and available subs to continue to educate students in the buildings.
Today is a transition day and students will begin Distance learning from Wednesday October 28th to Thursday November 5th. Friday, November 6th is work day with no school and students will be back in the buildings on Monday November 9th.
The administration feels this is required to help slow the spread of the virus and they will communicate closer to 11/9 what the learning model will be.
