Green Forest Transitions to Virtual Learning for Middle School and High School

by: Scott McCaulley

Siting the number of staff members either testing positive or in quarantine due to COVID-19, Green Forest Middle School and High School will transition to Virtual Learning beginning Thursday.

In a statement posted on the Green Forest School District’s Facebook Page, Superintendent Dr. Matt Summers says school will be in session on site Wednesday so Middle School and High School Students as devices and chargers will be checked out for students to take home along with instructions on completing assignments and information on having access to free breakfast and lunch.
Dr. Summers also states that learning zones will be established for students that need to be on campus and that programs like C4 and Athletics will continue as normal. Normal on site instruction is scheduled to resume on October 15.

Meanwhile, Green Forest Elementary and Intermediate Schools will continue as normal.

The complete statement is below:
This is Dr. Matt Summers, Superintendent of Schools for the Green Forest School District. Green Forest Middle School and High School will be pivoting to virtual instruction starting Thursday, October 1. The Middle School and High School will return to normal face to face instruction on Thursday, October 15. This pivot is caused due to the high number of staff members on these campuses that are either positive or in quarantine from having close contact to the COVID 19 virus. The Elementary and Intermediate campuses will continue as normal.
Wednesday, September 30 will be very important for all MS/HS students to attend if able due to the upcoming transition. Devices will be checked out to go home along with chargers. Teachers will be going over how to log on and complete assignments over the pivot along with other important instructions that will need to be covered. MS and HS students can receive free lunches and breakfasts over the pivot time by requesting the meals from a form on our website or by calling the Cafeteria. These meals can be picked up at the cafeteria @ 11 a.m. each school day or can be delivered on the afternoon bus route.
Learning zones will be available for MS and HS students that must attend school. Information for sign up, locations, etc. will be made at their campus on Wednesday.
During this pivot from face to face instruction to virtual classes many programs will continue. C4, athletics. meals, bus routes will all still be ongoing as normal. If a student is involved in one or more of these programs please visit with your coach, teacher, or sponsor for more details on Wednesday.
All MS and HS staff not in quarantine will be expected to be on site during pivot days to provide instruction for virtual education, assist with parent or student questions or assist in other areas as needed. Thank You
