After delaying in-person learning four times, due to COVID-19 cases in the county, the La Crosse School District is making some changes.
The district posted today, schools will open for 4k – 5th grade students Oct. 26.
Virtual learning will, again, be extended through at least Nov. 1 for grades 6-12.
The district says it’s “committed to at least two weeks of in-person instruction once we start in-person instruction.”
Also, the district says to prepare for more information from principals and teachers in each of the schools over the next week. If conditions keep improving, which is expected, the middle school could move to hybrid learning Nov. 2.
High school students would remain virtual until there are more improvements.
The seven-day average for cases, according to the district’s metrics, is still in the red at 26.9 cases per 100,000. Positive test ratios and close contacts are in orange. Case rate trend is in the yellow, but decreasing.
