LA CROSSE (WKBT) — Logan Middle School in La Crosse has canceled in-person learning Thursday and Friday because of inadequate staff coverage, according to a message the principal emailed to families.

The school expects to resume in-person teaching Monday, according to the email Wednesday from Principal Amber Erickson.

Erickson attributed the two-day suspension of in-person learning to “the inability to find staff coverage within our building.”

However, students won’t be getting a free day, as the email notes that they “will be expected to access their Canvas page for instruction and materials in each class. This will be done asynchronously. This means that students will not be expected to join Zoom.”

Students who have questions will be able to email their teachers for assistance.

Pupils also won’t have to go hungry, as Erickson’s email stipulates that breakfast and lunch will be available to “ALL students who are able to get to school.”

Breakfast will be served from 8 to 9 a.m. and lunch, from 11 a.m. to noon. “Your student can come any time during the offered time period,” Erickson wrote.
