Crestview going all remote beginning Monday

NEW WATERFORD — Crestview Local Schools will all return to remote learning for the next two weeks starting on Monday.

“We are going to take 14 days to try to cool this thing off,” Superintendent Matthew Manley said of the rise in coronavirus numbers, adding the school was only supposed to be in session for six of those 14 days anyway due to the Thanksgiving holiday.

Manley said students are still expected to attend their classes remotely at the same time, so someone with a 7:30 a.m. algebra class is expected to log in for it at 7:30 a.m. Athletics and other school activities will continue, although it was noted every game is a day-to-day challenge with the ever changing situation.

Manley noted Crestview had no cases until about eight days ago. With the county going level three, red, the district’s administrative team had considered going remote longer, but had decided that the way the virus numbers change it is difficult to know right now how numbers will look weeks down the road. They will continue to monitor the situation.

“Our folks have done such a great job,” Manley said. “We’re going to continue to work at it…Our administrative team decided let’s just focus on the immediate.”
