CIRCLEVILLE, Ohio (WCMH) — The Circleville City School District will not be providing transportation for students Tuesday due to COVID-19 contact tracing protocols and switch to remote learning starting Wednesday.

According to a letter send by Circleville City Schools Superintendent Jonathan Davis, the district received notice that several member of the transportation department and support personnel are involved in county contact tracing protocols, leaving the district below “minimum staffing levels required to operate all routes.”

“As a result, school will still be held as scheduled tomorrow, Tuesday, November 17th, 2020, but without transportation services, as we continue to work with the health department to contact trace,” Davis wrote in the letter.

Students who cannot make it to school without transportation will learn remotely Tuesday.

The letter also states that starting Wednesday and continuing through the Thanksgiving break, the district will transition to remote learning, with a goal of having students back to in-person learning on Nov. 30.
