After a specially called board meeting, the Vicksburg Warren School District Board of Trustees announced it will not open schools for in-person classes Friday as scheduled.
Superintendent Chad Shealy cited a shortage of janitorial staff due to COVID-19. “The cleaning has not been up to the standard we needed it to be,” he said. “We [also] had a shortage of PPEs.”
Shealy went on to indicate that construction was also not on schedule adding to the issues facing the in-person opening of the schools.
The board is discussing the opening date and how best to handle it.
Monday, Aug. 17, is the new date to open schools for the fall semester.
