LEEDS — Leeds City Schools will go virtual for several days this week, starting Wednesday, January 12, the Tribune has learned.
The virtual schooling is necessary due to the COVID-19 surge, LCS Superintendent Dr. John Moore.
“We have too many teachers affected and not enough substitutes,” Moore said. “Hopeful that when we return next Tuesday we will be on the other side of this peak.”
The schools will remain closed through Friday, January 14. A Facebook notice from the school superintendent’s office stated that when students return to school on Tuesday, January 18, that all students will be required to wear masks.
School will be out on Monday due to the Martin Luther King Jr. federal holiday.
At this point extracurricular activities such as sports will go on as usual, Moore said.
“Sports schedules are per normal, unless the coach or a mass of players have Covid,” he said.
