Effective Monday, November 30, the Eau Claire Area School District will
move all students to fully virtual learning for a temporary period.
This transition will affect all grade levels. The District expects this model to remain in place through Tuesday, December 8th. However, District leaders and public health experts will re-evaluate the situation and determine a decision to continue the virtual model or return to their hybrid model on Tuesday, December 1st.
The District made this decision due to a current shortage of available teachers and staff, as viral cases and quarantines are significantly affecting teacher and staff absences. The District also expects more staff absences in the near future as a result of the newly available community antigen testing site at Memorial High School.
With the timing of this announcement, District leaders hope that providing a two-week notice will allow families time to arrange for childcare and other needs.
