This Monday and Tuesday (November 23 and 24) are virtual learning days for K-12 students in Oak Ridge Schools.
Teachers are providing instruction from their classrooms to students, who are learning remotely from home. Building principals were expected to share details with families.
In a letter to families, Oak Ridge Schools Superintendent Bruce Borchers said elementary school students now have electronic devices and can use this opportunity to participate in true virtual learning.
Preschool students are continuing with their current schedule this week and are meeting in person on Monday, November 23, and Tuesday, November 24.
Students will resume their current schedules on Monday, November 30. In the current schedules, preschool and elementary school students attend classes in person five days per week, while middle school and high school students attend classes two days per week with online classes the other three days.
This week, Food Services is offering drive-through meals at Robertsville Middle School (in the front entrance loop) from Monday to Wednesday from 11 a.m.-12:15 p.m. They will be giving out both a breakfast and a lunch during those hours, Borchers said. Meals can be picked up for anyone 18 and under.
“I want to thank everyone for their efforts to help provide the highest quality instruction possible during this pandemic,” Borchers said. “We often reiterate that the health and wellbeing of staff, students, family, and community members remains our primary concern. Additionally, we continually strive to assure that we are providing a safe learning and work environment. We will only be successful in this effort if all members of our staff and community are working together…
“It is our hope that you and your loved ones are and will remain healthy and safe while we all continue to address the challenges of COVID–19.”
More information will be added as it becomes available.
