Winchester Schools transition to all distance learning
Starting Monday November 23 and lasting through at least December 2 all Winchester City Public Schools will transition to 100% distance learning.
In a letter to students, staff and families school superintendent Jason Van Heukelum announced that due to the city’s 60+% increase in COVID-19 cases the ability to contact trace has been compromised.
In light of that the schools will be distance learning until at least the second of December.
The decision to reopen schools will be dependent on the ability to effectively contact trace and implement quarantine procedures.
The situation will be reevaluated after monitoring the COVID-19 spread in the community over the holiday weekend.
Look for more information after the Thanksgiving weekend.
