WASHINGTON — Chancellor of DC Public Schools Dr. Lewis Ferebee announced via Twitter Sunday evening that some schools will go back to virtual learning for the week due to recent COVID cases.
McKinley Technology High School and Turner Elementary School are going virtual because of the operational impact of the recent cases. Bard High School Early College DC will also join them in virtual learning. The schools will be virtual through Dec. 22, Ferebee said.
“We continue to monitor the increased number of cases at schools and remain in coordination with public health authorities,” the tweet read.
Just days ago, the CEO of Prince George's County Public Schools announced to county families that schools will all move to virtual learning starting Monday, Dec. 20. Students are not set to return to classrooms until mid-January.
On Wednesday, Goldson announced a high of 155 cases reported in a single day compared to a two-day total last week of fewer than 100 cases.
