Published on: 1/17/2022

SCCPSS considers the health and well-being of our students, teachers, and staff to be of the utmost importance. It is with this in mind that we are notifying you of a temporary shift to virtual learning for Shuman Elementary School due to COVID related issues and confirmed positive cases among staff and students that is impacting staff availability. 

Shuman Elementary School will shift to remote learning from January 18th through January 21st. Extensive contact tracing procedures have been completed and all affected students and staff have been identified. 

DETAILS:  No In-Person Classroom Activities at School for Students

  • This virtual shift goes into effect on the evening of Monday, January 17, 2022, and includes all school activities.
  • January 18 – January 21, students should log in to the itsLearning portal for class assignments and should follow instructions from their teachers for virtual learning schedules.
  • Available staff will continue to work in isolation from their assigned workstations at school.  The school will not be open for appointments.
  • Students/families will be able to pick up a lunch meal on the school's bus ramp each day from 11am to 1:00pm. 

At this time, school is expected to resume in-person classes on Monday, January 24th.  If that schedule changes, families will be alerted through the Parent Notification System.

​Once again, due to confirmed positive COVID cases and the need to implement quarantine protocols among school personnel, Shuman Elementary School will be closed to in-person learning January 18-21, 2022.  All students should remain on their regular learning schedule but must remain home and log on through itsLearning.
