BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Norris School District announced Wednesday it is returning to distance learning for all grade levels as a result of surging COVID-19 cases in the county.
Distance learning begins Monday and will continue through Jan. 8, the district said. In-person instruction will resume Jan. 11.
“Please note that this pause is voluntary and is not related to a COVID-19 outbreak within our district community, but rather the decision was made out of an abundance of caution and as a result of the current strain on our staffing capacity,” said a release from the district.
Children who are sick or have come into contact with a COVID-19-positive person should remain home, the district said.
