Starkville-Oktibbeha Consolidated School District is monitoring the weather for a possible transition to virtual learning for all students Monday and Tuesday, a press release issued this morning said.
While the district has not yet officially determined whether the transition will be necessary, the press release said SOCSD will inform parents through its mass-messaging system, SchoolMessenger, as well as by text, email and social media.
Distance learning schedules and lesson information will be provided to students and families by their teachers or schools, according to the release.
Students enrolled as virtual students for the spring 2021 semester will continue to hold virtual classes as scheduled.
The weather forecast is currently calling for possible winter precipitation early next week.
