WCSD to continue online/remote learning week of Jan. 4

The Warren City School District will continue with full online/remote learning for all PK-12 students Monday, Jan. 4 through, at minimum, Friday, Jan. 8, due to elevated COVID-19 transmission numbers across the City of Warren and Trumbull County overall.

The district will re-evaluate this decision based upon the most current health information provided to us closer to Wednesday, Jan. 6, to determine whether students will return to hybrid learning the following week.

“While our goal is to always provide in-person learning, the elevated number of COVID-19 cases across the state, county and our city is affecting our schools’ abilities to maintain consistent and stable in-person learning and effective operations,” said Superintendent Steve Chiaro.

Mr. Chiaro said the district will continue to work closely with the Trumbull County and Warren City Health Departments monitoring health conditions on a week-by-week basis to determine when the district will be able to return to in-person instruction.

The district shifted all students to online/remote learning Nov. 23 due to increasing numbers of students and staff testing positive with COVID-19, related quarantines and pending COVID-19 test results across the district the City of Warren and Trumbull County overall.

On Nov. 24, the Trumbull County Board of Health issued a stay-at-home advisory asking all Trumbull County schools to switch to remote learning.
