The Knox County R-1 School District was expecting to resume in-person classes, however, a sharp uptick in COVID-19 cases throughout the county and region has pushed those plans back. School administrators announced over the weekend school would not be resuming in-person until after the Thanksgiving break.
This comes on the heels of new quarantine rules for schools, which were issued by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services and the arrival of seasonably cold weather.
The district resumed food delivery to students this week beginning Tuesday, November 17. Virtual classes also resumed on Tuesday, after giving school staff Monday to prepare for another spell of online classes and meal delivery.
