Fri. 11:19 a.m.: Warren moving all students to remote learning on Monday
WARREN — The Warren City School District is moving all K-12 students to online/remote learning effective Monday through Dec. 18, which is the end of the first semester.
The decision to move to online only was made due to increasing numbers of students and staff testing positive with COVID-19, related quarantines and pending test results across the district and Trumbull County overall, according to Superintendent Steve Chiaro.
Should health conditions improve, the district anticipate returning to hybrid instruction as early as Jan. 4.
Warren G. Harding High School students will continue to work under their gold schedule; K-8 online students will continue as they have been working; and hybrid Cohort A and B students will now combine during this time for four full days of instruction — Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
While the goal is to always provide in-person learning, the rise in COVID-19 cases has affected the district’s ability to maintain consistent and stable in-person learning and effective operations, according to a news release.
“As a result, we believe moving to all remote learning over the next several weeks is the best decision to protect its students and staff,” Chiaro stated.
The district will continue to distribute food to student families with plans to release details regarding any change in times and locations of distribution as soon as possible, via the district website.
At this point, athletics and activities will continue but will be reevaluated frequently.
Additionally, student schedules will be communicated through the district website, www.warrencityschools.org; email address each family has submitted through final forms; and via information communicated directly by the classroom teacher via the remind app.
