Hart County Schools return to all-virtual classes
Mary Beth Sallee
The Hart County School District made an announcement via its Facebook page that its school system would return to all virtual classes beginning Thursday, October 15.
This comes as the district has seen an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases.
Assistant Superintendent Debbie Fowler posted the following statement on the Hart County Schools Facebook page:
“Due to the increased number of COVID 19 cases in the Hart County School System and the difficulty to safely provide in-person instruction, in addition to working closely with the Barren River Area Health Department, Hart County Schools will be all virtual October 15 through October 28. We will return to our current A/B model on October 29 with the green group if all data is acceptable.”
According to information provided on the school district’s website, there are currently confirmed positive COVID-19 active cases in two students at Hart County High School.
There is one active staff case and one active student case at Memorial Elementary. Because of these active cases, seven staff members and seven students from that elementary school are under quarantine.
We will keep this story updated as information is received.
