Erie Elementary School shifts to remote learning after COVID-19 spike

ERIE — Erie Elementary School students — including its pre-K classes — moved to remote learning on Tuesday, Superintendent Charles A. Millem said.

Millem informed the board of education of the decision on Monday during its regular meeting.

There had been a rise in cases in recent weeks, he said.

“We’ll continue to monitor and hope it subsides after coming back from break,” he said.

Additionally, a planned community service project on Tuesday to decorate business windows in the downtown was postponed until the following week.

“Hopefully this pause will allow things to calm down and we will return to in-person learning on Monday, Nov. 29,” wrote Millem in an email sent to parents on Monday.

The middle school and high school had in-person classes on Tuesday.

Teachers of the affected students will communicate with them using the See-Saw remote learning platform.
