We would like to inform you that due to COVID related staffing issues, Etowah Middle School will transition to the blended learning option on October 28, 2020. This decision is based on staff illness, contact tracing, and limited availability of substitutes. Student case numbers remain low. Traditional students will remain at home during this time and receive daily instruction from their teachers. Students need to check their email several times daily. Our plan is for EMS students to return to campus on Monday, Nov. 9, 2020. Traditional students that need a device will receive one on Tuesday, Oct. 27th, provided the student returns a signed copy of the student chromebook checkout and user agreement that was sent home today. Student work packets will be available at EMS beginning Thursday after lunch for blended students who do not have access to the internet. Teachers will be available daily from 8-3 and will stay in constant communication with students during this time frame. This will not affect students who are currently on the remote learning option. We appreciate your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times.
