Eagle High School will transition into full-time remote learning on Wednesday due to the “current amount of absences in office and teaching staff.”
West Ada School District says the school will continue the alternating day schedule on Nov. 30, following Thanksgiving break.
The district explained the decision was made based on positive cases and quarantine numbers rising in the area.
“The school district’s pandemic plan enables school leaders to look at the circumstances of classrooms, programs or schools when deciding about moving into remote learning,” the district said.
This is what the district considers:
Impact of virus on community – Idaho Health & Welfare cases per 100,000 and impact on local resources
Overall impact of virus on West Ada School District – Cases per 100,000 by District/Level
Number of positive cases – Student and staff
Impact on students – Quarantines due to COVID/overall student absences
Impact on staff – Quarantines due to COVID/overall staff absences
Extent of the exposure risk
Case Surveillance – Distinct/Cluster/Outbreak
“The decision to move to remote learning is taken seriously and only after exhausting all other practical solutions,” the district said. “Please continue to practice social distancing, hand washing and wearing masks to keep our community transmission low.”
