General Brown Superintendent Barbara Case alerted the community on Wednesday night regarding additional COVID-19 cases identified in the District. Superintendent Case transitioned the District to temporary remote learning.

Case stated that the positive cases “limits [the districts] ability to properly supervise children at all school buildings within the District; therefore it is necessary to transition to remote instruction for Thursday and Friday, January 21 and 22.”
