The school made the switch after more than one-third of its teachers and staff tested positive, were presumed positive, or were quarantined due to COVID-19, leaving the school’s overall staff depleted, according to an announcement from the district.

That number really took off between yesterday and today,” Chief Communications Officer Cody Cunningham told Community Impact Newspaper on Dec. 10. “It would not be responsible for us to continue in-person learning.”

Students at the school transitioned to virtual learning today. The school will resume in-person learning after the break on Jan. 5. The announcement also stated the RJE Club 360 after-school program will be closed for the remainder of the semester.

During the closure, the campus will undergo deep cleaning and disinfecting.

We encourage parents to follow recommended guidelines for reducing the spread of COVID-19 (washing hands, wearing a mask, and practicing social distancing),” the health services letter stated. “Please know that the health and safety of our students and staff will always be our highest priority. We appreciate your ongoing patience and understanding as we do our best to provide our students with the safest possible learning environment during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The dedication of front liners for their patients is remarkable. However, sometimes, people forget that they are humans too. They too can feel burnout, stressed and depressed and sometimes, their job might involve when they feel down the most. They sometimes may fail to do a followup charting to a patient or fail to monitor a particular patient in the required time due to stress and burnout, especially after long hours of shift.
