Sylacauga students’ return to schools set for Jan. 10

SYLACAUGA, Ala. – After beginning the new semester through virtual learning, the Sylacauga City School (SCS) system has announced a return to campuses for next Monday, Jan. 10.

Due to the spread of the COVID Omicron variant, the SCS system went ahead with e-Learning for the first three days of classes.

“It has always been my strong belief that students learn best from in-person instruction from their teacher,” said SCS superintendent Dr. Michelle Eller, “and we are eager to have our students back in the classrooms.”

For the first two weeks masks will be mandatory for all on campus. The plan going forward can fluctuate based on the COVID rate.

“It was a tough decision to implement e-Learning the first three days of the semester,” Eller said, “but it was the right call to make based on the number of positive COVID cases in our community. We have realized in recent years that there are times when it is necessary to implement e-Learning days.”
