Norwich High School temporarily shifts to remote learning

NORWICH – The Norwich High School recently announced that it will temporarily move to remote learning until January 20 due to quarantine orders.

According to Norwich City School District Superintendent Scott Ryan, the shift is based on recent quarantine orders, some were mandatorily imposed by the Department of Health and others were precautionarily imposed by the district.

Ryan said the move isn’t related to a surge in cases throughout the high school, but that it is related to the impact of quarantine on staff members and workplace functionality.

“This is really just precautionary, it’s not about an increase in covid cases,” said Ryan. “There are several pieces of our organization that need to be working in order to have in person instruction.”

Ryan said due to an exposure, key sections of the school, in this case cafeteria workers, were asked to quarantine. He said with a key area exposed, the school and public health officials determined it would be best to move staff and students to remote instruction for the short term.
