TOMAHAWK – Tomahawk Elementary School Principal Guy Steckbauer announced on Wednesday, Nov. 18 that beginning next month, Fridays will be remote learning days for all elementary students.
The change will take effect the week beginning Nov. 30, with Friday, Dec. 4 being the first remote learning day. The schedule will be maintained “until further notice.”
In-person instruction will continue Monday through Thursday each week.
Steckbauer cited “the elevated level of quarantined students and the time needed to prepare for both in-person and remote instruction” as factors in the decision to switch to remote learning on the final day of the school week.
“As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact our educational community, we have seen an increased need for elementary staff to prepare instructional materials for students that are both in-person, as well as an increasing number of quarantined students who are learning remotely,” he stated, noting that the number of quarantined students has increased since the decision was made on Oct. 2 to dismiss students at 1 p.m. on Fridays.
