The Rochester Schools have suspended all in-class instruction and suspended their athletic programs through August 24.
E-learning will take place instead, and devices for learning online can be picked up by parents at the student’s school building Tuesday from Noon to 4 p.m., and Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Thursday marks the beginning of e-learning classes.
The schools made the decision after consulting with the Fulton County Health Department. In a statement Monday, school officials cited “the actions of a few” that prevented in-class learning — alluding to a number of students who attended end-of-summer celebrations.
