Calumet Public Schools (CLK) returns to remote learning

CALUMET — Calumet-Laurium-Keweenaw (CLK) Schools will return to remote learning.

A press release sent out by superintendent Christopher Davidson reads:

“Please trust that we have forged ahead as long as possible before coming to this decision, but due to a current shortage in staffing we cannot adequately staff face-to-face learning.  All CLK Schools will be transitioning to remote learning starting tomorrow, November 12th. 

I would like to keep this period of remote learning as brief as possible, so we will be starting with 4 days and a tentative return to face-to-face learning on Wednesday, November 18th.  I will monitor our situation and if necessary extend remote learning until things have cooled down and we have a sufficient number of staff to operate face-to-face instruction again.  I am very sorry for all inconveniences this transition to remote learning may cause you and your family.

Similar to the last period of remote learning, students will continue their curriculum progression through Zoom meetings with their teacher(s) and participation in learning activities in SeeSaw, Schoology, or Google Classroom.  Teachers will be providing students with the resources necessary for learning prior to their dismissal this afternoon. 

If you are in need of a school hotspot please contact your child’s office to make arrangements. This transition to remote learning will not impact extracurricular activities, so athletic contests will continue as scheduled.”
