Clovis schools call off in-person classes for Wednesday
Last updated 1/26/2022 at 10:52am
Clovis Municipal Schools will not conduct in-person instruction today due to “staffing challenges coupled with forecasts of pending inclement weather,” according to a CMS news release.
It’s the second time in a week CMS has called off in-person instruction due to staffing and potential for bad weather. Classes were also called off last Thursday.
Instruction today will instead be conducted “asynchronously, which means students will work independently from home at the direction of their classroom teacher,” the news release stated.
Instruction methods will be determined by each teacher and may be conducted via Google Classroom or by a paper packet. If a teacher selects a paper packet, work will be provided to students, in advance, on Tuesday, the release stated.
The National Weather Service had forecast up to 3 inches of snow Tuesday night and this morning, along with below-freezing temperatures. School officials said last month they had 47 teacher openings.
While campuses are unoccupied today, custodial and maintenance staff will be deep cleaning buildings, prioritizing those facilities with the highest recent COVID positivity rates, the news release stated. “Due to the cleaning, Grab and Go Meals will not be served Wednesday.”
In-person instruction is expected to resume Thursday.
