Due to the increased rise in COVID-19 cases and quarantines in the area, Taylorville School District will return to remote learning beginning on Monday, November 16th. The school district issued a press release late on Friday. In the press release, the school thanked the teachers, staff, students, and families for all of the hard work and dedication during remote learning, but the high percentage of staff that has been placed into quarantine and surging positive COVID-19 cases forced the School District to reverse course.
The school district is concerned about returning to remote learning and asks that parents help make remote learning a priority for students including setting up a daily schedule, establishing bedtimes, daily self-care, scheduling physical exercise, getting fresh air, participating in the school meal program, limiting the use of gaming, and encouraging daily reading.
