(KCCR) — The Stanley County School District is moving to a distance learning model due to Covid-19. Superintendent Dr. Daniel Hoey says the reason for the change is due to “staff exposure and subsequent quarantining.” The distance learning mode applies for the Junior Kindergarten through 12th grade classes. Distance learning will begin Tuesday September 22nd and will continue through the remainder of September. Traditional classes will begin again October 1st. All athletic and extra-curricular activities are being suspended. Hoey says when regular classes resume; all students will be required to wear face coverings when social distancing is not possible. Stanley County’s homecoming for 2020 is being moved back one week to the week of October 5th to the 9th. Students are being directed to pick up textbooks and electronic devices today from noon to six pm. Students should also expect additional communication from teachers. The District’s Cheyenne School will continue classes as normal.
