Paoli Schools Switching To E-Learning Monday

(PAOLI) – Paoli Community Schools is temporarily moving to E-Learning.

Superintendent Greg Walker issued the following statement Thursday afternoon:

Hello Ram families, this is Superintendent Greg Walker. COVID has not been good to us this week. By the end of the day we had over 100 students out due to contact tracing.

After consulting with Dr. Lopez, I have made the decision to switch to Virtual E-Learning on Monday, November 16th. School will be in session tomorrow (Friday, November 13th) to allow students and staff a day to prepare.

We plan to return to in-person instruction on Monday, November 30th. All athletic practices and contests will continue as scheduled at this time.

Mr. Newkirk will provide updates on Rocky Ram, the school website, and on our Facebook page. I will announce our food service plan Friday.

As positive cases spike and we continue to set daily records of new positives in the state, I urge everyone to follow safety protocols so we can slow down this virus and our kids can return to school. Wear face masks when in public and when you can’t social distance. It will take everyone working together to slow down the spread of this virus.

I would like to wish everyone an early Happy Thanksgiving. Stay safe and God Bless!
