Another DeWitt County school district will be going to remote learning but this time it is for a shorter time.
Superintendent Amanda Geary tells Regional Radio News COVID contact tracing efforts are forcing around 15 to 20-percent of their students and teachers to quarantine and they are finding it difficult to get enough substitute teachers to fill the gap.
According to Geary, they hope to return to full in-person learning on November 30 but this will be discussed by their board of education at their upcoming meeting on Monday.
Geary stresses it is the contact tracing measures of COVID that are making things difficult for Deland-Weldon schools. She stresses in-person learning is what they want first and foremost but they also have to think about what is best for everyone in their communities.
