Rising Covid-19 case numbers in classrooms cause school districts to go virtual, change mask rules


August 13, 2021

Students returning from summer break are dismissed from buses at Southport Middle School in Indianapolis on Monday, July 26.

(CNN) - Schools across the country are grappling with growing Covid-19 case numbers, forcing districts to rethink their strategies for masking or having to switch to virtual learning.

Some schools in Mississippi, Indiana, and Georgia have already been forced to return to virtual. Some are hoping to return to in-person learning when case numbers drop.

This week alone, two Atlanta-area elementary schools sent some or all students home for virtual learning. Kemp Primary School in Clayton County said will "operate in a virtual learning environment for the remainder of the week," as a precaution. And fifth graders at East Side Elementary in Cobb County have also been sent home and won't return to in-person learning until at least August 23.
