Renfroe Middle School in Decatur will shift to virtual learning for two days next week, according to messages the principal sent to families on Thursday.
Renfroe will remain in-person Friday, then pivot to virtual learning on Monday and Tuesday.
Principal Greg Wiseman said the school is dealing with “increased staff absences” due to the coronavirus.
“Renfroe has reached level 4 in our COVID Crisis Staffing Plan due to unfilled substitute requests,” one message said. “While our teachers and central office staff have stepped up and covered classes as needed, we have reached the point where we need to switch to full-virtual learning for a short time.
