Add Clinton schools to a list of districts utilizing remote learning for the remainder of the first semester.
Superintendent Curt Nettles put the call out Thursday evening indicating the escalating situation of COVID in the community and its impacts on school is just too overwhelming right now.
Students will attend class Friday to meet one final time with teachers and get instruction on how things will look for the next three weeks following the Thanksgiving holiday. Nettles indicates Monday and Tuesday will be preparation days for teachers and then after Thanksgiving, remote learning begins until the end of the semester.
Nettles is very confident his teachers and school buildings are very ready for full remote learning. He indicates while note every building has gone remote to this point, there have been practice scenarios done for this. Additionally, with two days next week for last-minute preparations, Nettles says they are ready.
Many parents might be frustrated by this and he is very sympathetic to that frustration. He is thankful for the support from the community that is appreciative of the efforts of the district to this point and for the support from the Board of Education of the decisions so far.
