IPS high schools and stand-alone middle schools will move to full remote learning from Jan. 13-14 because of staffing limitations.
Middle schools that will go to virtual:
- Arlington Middle School
- Harshman Middle School
- Henry W. Longfellow Medical/STEM Middle School 28
- Northwest Middle School (including Newcomer)
- Arsenal Technical High School
- Crispus Attucks High School
- George Washington High School
- Shortridge High School
The district said staff absences include COVID-19 quarantine and isolations.
Students won’t be back in school until Jan. 19 (Jan. 17 is Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Jan. 18 is a professional development day), so the district hopes an extended break from in-person learning will give enough time for students and staff to meet the five-day isolation and quarantine guidelines.
