SCCPSS Announces Temporary Shift to Virtual Learning for Three High Schools Due to COVID Quarantine Measures

Published on: 1/10/2022

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 families of a temporary shift to virtual learning for three of our high schools this week:  Beach High School, Islands High School, and Johnson High School.  Due to COVID related issues and confirmed positive cases among staff and students that is impacting staff availability, these three high schools will shift to remote learning from the remainder of the week, from January 11th through January 14th. 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 10, 2022, and includes all school activities.

•           January 11 – January 14, students should log in to the itsLearning portal for class assignments and should follow instructions from their teachers for virtual learning schedules.

•           Athletic schedules may also be impacted to include possible game/practice cancellations.  Student athletes should contact their coaches for schedule information.

•           Available staff will continue to work in isolation from their assigned workstations at school.  The school will not be open for appointments

At this time, the schools are expected to resume in-person classes on Tuesday, January 18th.  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, Beach High School, Islands High School, and Johnson High School will be closed to in-person learning January 11-14, 2022.  All students should remain on their regular learning schedule but must remain home and log on through itsLearning.

​SCCPSS is committed to offering in-person learning this semester as we were able to do throughout the fall semester, but due to the rapid spread of COVID at this time, we ask our families to understand and prepare for health and safety conditions that may create rolling shifts to virtual learning.   If there are situations that require adjustments that may impact family routines, we will notify you as soon as possible through all available communication channels. We encourage you to develop emergency plans for such situations. To ensure we are able to reach you immediately, please make sure school officials have accurate contact information for your family.
