Bright Local students returned to campus on Wednesday.

The district transitioned to fully remote learning on Tuesday, Nov. 17 after an increase in quarantines involving students and staff members. The district originally planned to resume classes on-campus on its usual schedules on Tuesday but closed due to winter weather conditions.

Fairfield Local Superintendent Tim Dettwiller previously stated that administrators would decide and announce on Thursday whether the district would continue with the blended learning plan, return to on-campus learning, or move to fully remote learning beginning Monday, Dec. 7.

Greenfield Exempted Village School District (GEVSD) will continue with on-campus learning, but the district is preparing students and their families for other learning plans in the event that it must transition.

As of Nov. 24, Hillsboro City Schools will also remain open, according to a letter from superintendent Tim Davis, available on the district’s website at hillsboro.

During the Lynchburg-Clay school board’s Nov. 19 meeting, superintendent Brett Justice revealed that the district did not have a Covid-related contingency plan.

With the local winter sports seasons just under way, Highland County Health Commissioner Jared Warner speculated that the state could announce changes.
