Center Schools return to remote learning


CENTER — The Center Consolidated School District on Tuesday, Jan. 25, elected to shift its schools back to remote learning via Zoom for all students due to the rise in COVID-19 cases in the county.

According to the Center Consolidated School District, “There will be no school for Center students on Monday, January 24th. Tuesday-Thursday Center schools will transition to remote learning due to the increase in COVID cases in the county. Students will be expected to attend classes remotely all day on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.”

It was known how long the district would be in online learning.

A survey was extended to parents on Jan. 21, to gather information regarding the current increase in COVID cases.

The questions asked in the online survey included; asking parents what their greatest concerns are at this time, how comfortable are they with sending their student to school for onsite in-person instruction, asking if their students are vaccinated, and what do they think is the best situation for the students at this time, among other questions.

The Center Schools Facebook page stated that the district page would have more information regarding the move to remote learning.

COVID cases have been on the rise throughout the San Luis Valley, with Center having 21 active cases according to the Colorado Electronic Disease Reporting System (CEDRS). Saguache has 17, Crestone 9 and Sargents has a report of 1 case.
