FAIRBORN — Fairborn City Schools will switch to remote learning starting next week through the district’s winter break due to a rise in COVID-19 cases, according to a district spokesperson.

Remote learning starts district-wide Nov. 23 and will last through at least Jan. 1, 2021. However the district will reevaluate the situation upon the resumption of classes Jan. 4.

“Prior to returning on January 4, 2021, after Winter Break, we will re-evaluate the situation to determine if we continue with Remote Learning or if we have students return to school,” the spokesperson said in an emailed statement sent to families.

District officials said the decision to make the switch was made dude to a rise in COVID-19 cases, individuals in quarantine, and community spread.

“Please be sure to stay safe over the holiday season. Again, what we do in our personal time can and will impact our ability moving forward to stay open as a school district,” district officials said.
