A lack of staffing is forcing two of Luxemburg-Casco School District’s four buildings into virtual learning for the next two weeks. The district’s high and middle school students will have Monday off from school while teachers prepare virtual learning lesson plans. Their remote learning will start on Tuesday and continue until at least October 16th. Non-instructional staff members from those two buildings will assist the primary and intermediate schools with their staffing needs. Superintendent Glenn Schlender hopes that plan will alleviate some of the burden on those teachers’ plates.
Schlender says they will always try to stay open for in-person instruction as long as it is safe and staffing needs are met. Co-curricular activities can continue as scheduled.
