Gibraltar doing remote learning rest of school year

The Gibraltar schools will not be going back in session even if the state order is lifted after April 24. The Gibraltar School District Board of Education decided Monday night to continue remote school learning and cancel extracurricular activities for the rest of the year. Gibraltar Area School Superintendent Tina Van Meer says the difficult decision was made out of the safety for all concerned.




Van Meer adds that with the remote and online learning option, many parents may have chosen for their children not to return to school, making the transition difficult.  Gibraltar schools initiated E-learning possibilities last year when school was postponed due to long stretches of bad weather. Van Meer says her teachers are currently doing a fantastic job utilizing technologies like ZOOM and Google Hangouts to stay connected with their students virtually.
