Herrin CUSD #4 is planning to utilize e-learning days in place of emergency days this winter. In previous years, if weather presented a problem for the safe transportation of students to and from school, school would be canceled on what most people referred to as a snow day. With the availability of devices, hotspots, and internet, the district will be providing an educational platform on these former snow days called e-learning. E-learning will be just like our remote learning days except meals will not be available. We will attempt to notify all parents and students by 10:00 pm if a e-learning day will be used. Teachers will be notified,if at all possible, by 3:30 pm the day before an e- learning day is enacted. The school board will be discussing this issue during a public hearing on Thursday, November 19 at 5:00 pm.

The Southern Newspaper published a story in Saturday’s newspaper titled “Williamson County Virus Cases Rising.” In the article, several key metrics were incorrect regarding Herrin schools. They listed the number of students testing positive for COVID attending in person school as 231. This represents the number of students quarantined. The correct number of students testing positive for COVID 19, since the beginning of school, should read 45. The 45 students testing positive includes both remote and in person students. The article also sets the number of staff members presently out at NSPC as 6. The correct number is 16. A correction has been written online by The Southern.

As the number of individuals across the country, state,region and county contracting COVID 19 continues to increase, we are seeing a large uptick in the number of cases among students, faculty and staff. As a result of the increase, we are having a difficult time in filling in for the absences and providing an effective and safe learning environment. Parents need to be advised that Herrin CUSD #4 may need to pivot to complete remote learning on a day's notice, therefore, it would be beneficial for all parents to start looking into alternative childcare needs. Herrin CUSD #4 will be utilizing Remote Planning Days on November 23rd and 24th. These days will be non-attendance days for the students, therefore no assignments or homework will be issued. If we need to switch to complete remote learning earlier than November 23rd, the Remote Planning Days will be moved to the first day students would not be reporting to school. With the Thanksgiving Holidays coming up, I anticipate another surge of the virus as people visit with family and loved ones. The school district will be following the COVID numbers closely over the next week and through Thanksgiving. If we cannot run the schools safely and effectively, we will be switching to complete remote learning.
