Anderson County is switching to online teaching starting Tuesday and canceling extracurricular activities because of the recent increase in COVID-19 cases and quarantines, among other considerations.
The changes could be in effect through January 5.
Here is what the school system posted online:
Due to the recent rise in COVID-19 cases, household contacts, and quarantines (causing an inability to staff all necessary instructional positions), all Anderson County Schools will transition to virtual learning starting Tuesday, December 15, through Friday, December 18. During this time, all students will receive instructions about assignments from their teachers. Students who do not have Internet access can go to the Anderson County High School or Clinton High School library during normal school hours 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m. All extracurricular activities are canceled until January 5. All schools will resume on our regular schedule January 5. Thank you for your continued support as we navigate through this school year.
