The Jamestown C-1 School has again extended its period of virtual learning, which will ultimately have taken up nearly all of the month of November once students return in person.
Jamestown superintendent Gretchen Guitard announced last Wednesday that virtual instruction will continue through Nov. 24. The school's Thanksgiving break is scheduled for Nov. 25-27, and Guitard said in a message to Jamestown parents, students and patrons that she hoped the extended time away will provide for an opportunity for staff and students to return to in-seat instruction starting Nov. 30.
Jamestown C-1 first pivoted to virtual learning at the beginning of the month.
As of last week's announcement, 78 students and nine district employees were asked to quarantine by the Moniteau County Health Center, and another two district employees were quarantined in a neighboring county. Guitard said the COVID-19 issues Jamestown is experiencing are similar to what many other districts in the area are facing.
Scheduled Google Meets will continue as outlined in Jamestown's virtual learning plans. Parents may call the front office at 660-849-2141 or email [email protected] if their students need to pick up textbooks or other materials.
Jamestown will also continue with meal delivery throughout the remainder of the closure. Those parents who would like to add their student to the meal delivery route can email principal Jake Watson at [email protected].
