Stow-Munroe Falls High School will teach all courses online for the remainder of 2021 due to high COVID-19 cases in the school and other absences

Online classes will operate through Tuesday, with winter break starting on Wednesday, and in-person classes expected to resume in 2022

STOW, Ohio — Stow-Munroe Falls High School has announced on Friday that it will be operating remotely until the start of 2022.

In addition to Friday classes, the school has two more days of classes prior to winter break, coming next Monday and Tuesday, and is planning to be back in person when classes resume in January.

The reasoning for the rest of this year's classes to be finished remotely is due to an increase in COVID-19 cases being reported within the district, and a higher-than-normal rate of absent students due to non-COVID illnesses. 

A representative for the high school said that the school is seeing some of its largest numbers of students with COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic.

The thinking of the school is that the remote learning for the remainder of 2021 will give the students and staff the best chance to stay healthy while also receiving the necessary educational instruction.
