As the number of students in COVID-19 quarantine increases to more than 1,000 in the Vigo County School Corporation, the goal remains to keep schools open for in-person learning.
In a statement from Interim District Spokesperson Dr. Katelynn Liebermann, she explained that VCSC is evaluating the situation on a day-to-day basis. Calling the situation a moving target, officials have to be flexible to make sure students can get to school safely and stay in school safely, Liebermann said.
Collaborative conversations occur on a daily basis between the district and each school’s principal regarding staff availability, along with specific departments, such as Transportation and Food Services. We are working collectively to ensure students are able to continue to experience in-person instruction. Our district will continue to monitor the impact in our schools through consultation with the VCSC COVID-19 Task Force, the Vigo County Health Department, and community healthcare leaders, as well as our school nurses and health assistants.Dr Katelynn Liebermann, Interim District Spokesperson for VCSC
