WGNS has learned that Siegel High School is the latest school to announce distance learning for students, due to COVID-19.
James Evans with the Rutherford County Schools said that beginning Thursday, Dec. 3, all students at Siegel High School will move to distance learning through Friday, Dec. 11.
The school is experiencing an increased number of employees and students who are on quarantine. This switch to distance learning will allow for the school to close for a few days, which will allow emplpyees and students to complete their quarantine period.
The school will also be thoroughly cleaned while closed.
Evans stated, "We know this is an inconvenience for some parents but we have no other options because of the circumstances."
The school’s administration will follow-up with parents about logistics concerning distance learning.
