With the new cases, 785 staffers are out of school or work, including 460 teachers, according to the school district. Gwinnett, like other school systems nationwide, has a pandemic-related substitute shortage.
Teachers will still deliver lessons digitally from their classrooms, the district said. They will be allowed to bring their school-aged children into buildings. The digital learning week should give many quarantined employees the necessary time to return to work, according to the school district.
Student attendance will be documented next week.
Meals will be available for curbside pick-up at schools and along all bus routes countywide. The buses will run on their routes from about 10:45 a.m. to noon.
The school district will share updates about the return to classrooms on its website and through the SchoolMessenger app.
