Two Clermont County school districts announced a shift to remote learning Thursday in response to rising COVID-19 cases.
Clermont Northeastern schools will begin remote instruction on Monday, school officials said. District athletics practices and events are suspended at this time. The district plans to return to in-person learning on Nov. 30.
In a letter to families, Clermont Northeastern superintendent Mike Brandt said the decision was based off new coronavirus data and input from the Clermont County Health Director and district nurse. Any staff or students who may have been exposed to the virus have been contacted directly.
Students at Milford High School will move to a remote learning model on Friday, school officials say. Staff will continue to work in the building and will provide live virtual instruction, according to a Thursday release. Students will follow their school schedule at home.
All athletics, fine arts and other extracurriculars are canceled beginning Friday through Nov. 15, officials said.
“We are making this change to remote learning for the high school due to the large number of staff out on quarantine or absent due to illness,” the release reads. “We are unable to find enough substitutes to cover for teacher absences. We also have a large number of students in quarantine.”
