South Dearborn students must work from home
Students at South Dearborn schools will not go back into the buildings this school year, but that does not mean school is out for summer.
The corporation is instituting a plan to have all e-learning classes after students return from spring break and an additional week off.
The plan was discussed at the South Dearborn Community School Corporation Board meeting Tuesday, March 17.
Superintendent Eric Lows described the plan. Since the state is granting a waiver of 20 days of learning, the corporation is using five of those days the week of Mach 30-April 3. Teachers and administrators will use the days to plan e-learning lessons.
Starting April 6, waiver days will be used on each Monday and Friday for the rest of the year, effectively having no school those days. April 10 already was scheduled as a day off for Good Friday.
E-learning classes will be held Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Breakfast and lunch will be served to any student only at the elementary schools beginning April 6. The service will be drive-up only.
All extracurricular activities, including practices and events, are canceled until April 6, subject to change.
All buildings will be limited to employees only. If a student needs access, contact the principal.
Prom still is scheduled for Saturday, April 25, but the corporation has asked the Lawrenceburg Event Center to hold Saturday, May 23, as a secondary date.
Graduation still is scheduled for Saturday, June 6.
Information on Lawrenceburg and Sunman-Dearborn schools will be announced soon.
