Top News

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The Vigo County School Corporation will continue with the A/B model for in-person students for another three weeks, September 8-25.

The district will continue to serve students enrolled in fully-at-home hybrid and virtual models as well.

“Community spread continues to be significant in Vigo County, but we believe in the power of in-person school,” Bill Riley, director of communication, said. “Our schools have been able to enforce procedures to keep spread within our schools minimal, and we look forward to continued success in that area.”

The district also updated its COVID-19 dashboard, which shows:

  • 7 student positives with campus contact in the last 14 days (up from 6 last week, but school had only been in session for 8 calendar days last Wednesday)
  • 5 staff positives with campus contact in the last 14 days (up from 2 last week, but school had only been in session for 8 calendar days last Wednesday)
  • 151 students actively quarantined, down from 180 last week
  • 30 staff actively quarantined, up from 19 last week

The district reminds families to continue assessing their child each day for symptoms of COVID-19 to keep our community safe.

“We’re asking our community to continue to stay vigilant so that we might be able to welcome more children into our buildings,” Riley noted. “Labor Day is this weekend, and will have an impact on our educational model after September 25. Let’s make that impact a positive one by staying distanced and masked.”

Tuesday, September 8 will be an “A” cohort day.
