Eastern returns to virtual learning until after Thanksgiving

The East Washington School Corporation announced Wednesday a return to virtual learning. 

The return is due in-part to the rise of COVID-19 cases in Washington County, but according to the letter released by the school corporation, more specifically due to the number of students and staff that have tested positive, or are quarentined because of close contact. 

Eastern High School and East Washington Middle School started virtual learning today (Thursday, November 12) and East Washington Elementary School will will begin virtual learning on Monday. 

The announcement said the current plan is for students to return to school for in-person instruction on Monday, November 30, 2020.
