Summer Classes Move Online For Some Missouri Students Due To COVID
Summer classes have moved online for some St. Joseph elementary and middle school students because of COVID-19 cases.
The St. Joseph News-Press reports that Robidoux and Pershing schools will conduct classes virtually through July 1, when summer school ends. Gabe Edgar, the district’s assistant superintendent, described the move as a “precautionary measure.”
Only about 1 in 5, or 20.6%, of eligible residents have received the COVID-19 vaccine in Buchanan County, where St. Joseph is located. That’s below the statewide average of 37%. The vaccine is generally available to all people 12 and older.
