LA CROSSE, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – The School District of La Crosse will remain virtual until at least October 11 now. After meeting with the Coulee Collaborative and its medical advisor, the district decided to extend distanced learning.
There have been some technical hurdles with the format, but overall Superintendent Engel is grateful for parents’ patience and teachers’ creativity. While La Crosse County has seen the majority of recent cases in the age range of 18 to 29, Engel says it still affects schools reopening.
Dr. Aaron Engel, Superintendent of La Crosse School District said, “Those students are not just at the university they are across our school district. They work in long term healthcare facilities, they work in our schools, and they are our parents. The folks that are in that age range effect all parts of our community.”
The district will continue to monitor the situation to see if virtual learning needs to be extended or if in-person classes can start.
It says its already seen cases in the district even with the distanced format.
