Schools in Greene County, Alabama Switch to Remote Learning Until September
Students at four schools in Greene County, Alabama will switch to remote learning for at least two weeks as COVID-19 cases continue to surge throughout the state and nation.
In a Thursday afternoon post on Facebook, a spokesperson for Greene County Schools said effective Friday, August 20th, children will stay home and learn virtually.
The system includes Greene County High School, Robert Brown Middle School, Eutaw Primary School and the Greene County Career Center.
According to the post, students will return to classrooms on Tuesday, September 7th, giving the system a little more than two weeks to decide how to best combat the spread of the virus as the highly contagious Delta variant continues to ravage the country.
The announcement comes ahead of a Thursday evening virtual town hall meeting and an emergency session of the Greene County Board of Education Friday afternoon to discuss "School Operations in Relation to COVID."
