Due to concerns about staff availability, all Vigo County School Corporation schools will extend their period of remote learning through Friday, December 18.
It is our hope to return to in-person school on Monday, January 4. Winter break starts on December 21, and there will not be any remote learning during winter break. We will continue to work with the VCSC COVID-19 Task Force, the Vigo County Teachers Association, and local public health and healthcare leaders to determine the educational model offered on Monday, January 4, with the hope of offering as much in-person learning as possible at that time.
Title I pre-Kindergarten programs are also postponed until at least Monday, January 4.
Free grab-and-go meals will be available at the front door of each school from 11-noon each remote learning day. The package will include a breakfast and a lunch.
WiFi-enabled buses will be dispatched throughout the county, and a list at vigoschools.org will be updated with times and locations. All VCSC buildings have internet that can be accessed from the parking lot.
Elementary school teachers will communicate daily with all students to take attendance and to provide specific guidance about remote learning lessons. The daily schedule will be determined by the classroom teacher. Middle and high school students will continue with their current remote learning schedule.
The central administration building and general services buildings are closed to the public until December 7 due to a lack of available staff to respond to visitors to the building. Many staff members in those buildings continue to work on site. Please call 812-462-4011 and leave a message if you need to contact the central administrative building and someone will return your call.
This is a critical time in our community’s fight against COVID-19. Stay home if you are sick, and please avoid situations that put you at risk for transmission or quarantine because of a close contact. Our health care leaders also encourage you to get a flu shot to reduce any potential strain on our health care system this winter.
