VIGO Co., Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The Vigo County School Corporation announced Sunday that Meadows Elementary School will be on remote learning from October 26 to October 30.

They said this is due to 14 critical staff members being in quarantine.

Due to the amount of critical staff on quarantine, Meadows Elementary School will be on remote learning this week, October 26-30.

They said two staff members are positive, and only one was positive on school grounds.

School officials add, while most of the quarantined staff are not positive for COVID-19, the high number of quarantines means that the district cannot appropriately staff the school.

Many staff quarantines at Meadows are set to expire late this week.

They said students may stop by Meadows during school hours to get necessary materials and Chromebooks.

Students may pick up a free grab-and-go meal at Meadows from 8-9 a.m. and 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Staff members who are able to report to the building will be on campus during normal school hours.

Teachers will communicate daily with all students to take attendance and to provide specific guidance about remote learning lessons.
