Since the start of school, Clinton Schools have seen between 40 and 50 cases of COVID impacting the school system.
Superintendent Curt Nettles on the WHOW Morning Show Wednesday told Regional Radio News those cases are spread over the entire first semester.
According to Nettles, there have been points they have been close to going to remote for the whole district but he says their patience has allowed those situations to become less severe and they've been able to keep kids in the buildings.
As schools around Clinton go to remote learning at a district level or building level, be it for extended periods or temporarily, Nettles indicates if the situation warrants it, they will do the same thing.
Nettles says the district's principals and nurses are working throughout the day, including the evening hours through any positive COVID cases and contact tracing efforts. He credits their diligence during this difficult time.
