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."
