MINONK (WEEK) -- Fieldcrest Community Schools announced a transition to remote learning starting Tuesday, Nov. 17.
In a letter on Sunday, Superintendent Dr. Kari Rockwell said the district is experiencing an increase in quarantines due to positive cases, causing a lack of available substitutes.
Monday, Nov. 16 will be a remote planning day for teachers, and students will not be in attendance. However, students will be allowed to pick up devices from 9 am to 3 pm on Monday.
The letter also announced the school will be providing meals while the school is remote learning. They will be delivered two days at a time to students who ride a bus starting on Monday. In town students who don't ride a bus can pick up their meals at the school most convenient for their families from 10 am to 11 am.
Dr. Rockwell urged for families to be patient during the transtion.
"Please be kind to all who care for our students," Dr. Rockwell said. "The staff wants what is safe and engaging as we navigate through these changing times."
Currently, a return to in person learning is scheduled for Monday, Nov. 30.
