COVID-19 cases moves Clarinda Lutheran School to remote learning
A series of positive cases of COVID-19 has prompted Clarinda Lutheran School to move to remote learning for the next two weeks.
Interim Principal Chris Schindler said seven positive cases of COVID-19 had been confirmed at Clarinda Lutheran School. As a result, she said the school would implement a remote learning program starting Oct. 5. Schindler said Clarinda Lutheran School plans to resume onsite classes Oct. 15.
"Remote learning will vary according to grade level and will include learning packets as well as Zoom conferences, Zoom classes and Google Classroom assignments on iPads," Schindler said.
Clarinda Lutheran School is parochial school for students in kindergarten through eighth grade. There are 81 students enrolled at the school this year.
Through its Facebook page, Clarinda Lutheran School announced late Sept. 30 the school would be closed through Oct. 14 "due to an increase in COVID cases."
Like all other schools in Iowa, Clarinda Lutheran School was closed March 16 in an effort to prevent the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus. The remainder of the 2019-2020 school year was ultimately cancelled due to the pandemic.
"Based on our experience from last spring, we are confident that students, parents and teachers will be able to work productively and cooperatively, ensuring that quality education continues and high standards of learning are met," Schindler said.
