Luxemburg-Casco District reopening schools

Luxemburg-Casco School District announced Wednesday that in-person instruction would return on October 19th for middle school and high school students. Superintendent Glenn Schlender says that the two-week shift to virtual learning allowed staff to quarantine in accordance with public health guidelines, easing the burden on the district to find replacements.


Schlender says that district data suggests that as active cases have subsided some in the past week countywide, that trend has occurred among staff and students as well. He doesn't believe the school is a transmission site but says a holistic approach is needed when assessing the bigger picture. The situation has shifted from a significant headwind at the beginning of the month to a small positive.  Schlender writes by email that if conditions warrant it, a return to virtual learning is possible in the future. He urges everyone to adhere to COVID-19 mitigation guidelines to avoid that potential outcome.
