Norfork School District switches to virtual learning

Another local school district will be switching completely to virtual learning for the next three weeks. The Norfork School District announced its classrooms will be closed to on-site learning beginning Monday.

The district had announced on Wednesday 11 elementary and seven high school students were being quarantined, and two students had tested positive for the coronavirus. Seven staff members were also quarantined, with two potential quarantines pending the outcome of family member test results. One staff member has tested positive for the virus.

The virtual learning period will continue through Nov. 24. Norfork’s campus is already set to be closed Nov. 25-27 for the Thanksgiving holiday period. On-site instruction is currently set to resume Nov. 30.

Staff members who are not being quarantined or have not tested positive will be on the campus every weekday from 9 to 2, and others at home will also be involved with virtual learning. The Norfork School District is reminding the public internet service is available anywhere on campus. Other hot spots are also ready for service, including the Jacob Wolf House.
