Ellsworth High School to Go Remote Monday September 20
Students at Ellsworth High School will be learning virtually today, Monday, September 20th.
The hope is that this will be just for the 1 day, which will allow the nurses and the COVID team to conduct contract tracing on a potential COVID case.
Hancock County Technical Center is open, and students from sending schools other than Ellsworth High School are expected to attend in person. Those from Ellsworth High School will attend via Zoom. Bridge Academy students will attend their classes remotely at Ellsworth High School
All extra and co-curricular activities after school are cancelled for Monday, September 20th.
Regardless of this event, everyone should be self screening every morning and NOT go to school if you or your child/children have a fever or don't feel well. Anyone with symptoms of COVID should be in contact with the school nurse.
