Zionsville Community Schools announced its schools would close beginning 6 p.m. today. The school system will remain closed to students tomorrow while educators plan for “many successive days of eLearning,” the school system’s superintendent, Scott Robison, stated.
There will be no eLearning for students tomorrow, a news release said.
The move comes in response to the spread of the new coronavirus and the disease stemming from it, COVID-19.
Tomorrow, ZCS faculty and support staff will finalize plans for “many successive days” of eLearning that will begin March 16. More information about the schedule of e-days leading up to the school system’s spring break, which begins March 27, will be communicated later this afternoon, according to the news release.
“This is an unprecedented time, and while I know this decision is a difficult one for many families, we take this action in effort to protect against the sort of community spread of (CoVID-19) that has killed vulnerable individuals in many places around the globe,” Robison stated.
