AKRON – Two of Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation’s facilities will shift to virtual instruction for one week after the Labor Day weekend.
The change involves the high school and Burket Education Center, the school district announced in a news release issued Friday morning, Sept. 3.
Virtual learning will begin Tuesday, Sept. 7, for one week.
The change is due to contact tracing for COVID-19, said Lori Tilden Geiger, director of marketing, public relations, and grants for the school district.
She said she was unsure how many positive COVID cases have been identified in the district.
All other schools – Akron Elementary, Mentone Elementary, and Tippecanoe Valley Middle School – will continue in-person instruction.
TVHS Builder Trades, Warsaw Area Career Center and interning students are to report to these programs.
TVHS and Burket students may order lunches at Akron Elementary or Mentone Elementary for pickup between 11 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. during these days. Students or parents are to call in the order by 8:30 a.m.
