Woodrow Wilson Elementary School start e-learning due to staff COVID-19 infections
RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - Woodrow Wilson Elementary School will be e-learning for two weeks.
In a Facebook post, Katy Urban said beginning Oct. 8 the school will move to Level 3, because several staff members have become infectious with COVID-19. The main issue is staff absences make it nearly “impossible” to have enough teachers to teach students.
While Level 3 is not ideal, the numerous staff absences makes it difficult, if not impossible, to adequately staff our classrooms," Urban said, “This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and with the health and well-being of our students, staff, and community in mind.”
Wilson Elementary School is the first school within Rapid City Area Schools district to close for two weeks.
