Clinton High School students will have to wait until Nov. 4 to return to class.
Superintendent Curt Nettles says they have no good reason to bring students back and with an already high number of students have to quarantine, they felt it was best to continue remote learning until Nov. 4. He adds, Nov. 4 was chosen because there are no classes on Nov. 2 and the State has designated election day as a state holiday.
According to Nettles, the district is at 19 cumulative cases of COVID across the district with eight originating from the high school and then four from the junior high school.
Nettles understands the frustration of parents during these situations and indicates it is frustrating to them as well. He appreciates the cooperation from the community and how hard their staff is working to keep kids safe while they are in school.
