LA CROSSE (WKBT) — Inadequate staffing resulting from COVID-19 absences has prompted Logan Middle School in La Crosse to cancel in-person classes for the second time in two weeks.

The school will use virtual learning Wednesday and Thursday, as it did Thursday and Friday last week, because of staff shortages, according to an email Principal Amber Erickson sent to parents and staffers Tuesday.

“This is due to the inability to find staff coverage within our building,” Erickson wrote.

During the hiatus, students “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,” she wrote.

Students who have questions can email them to their teachers, she wrote.

Also Wednesday and Thursday, breakfast and lunch will be provided to all students who are able to get to school. Breakfast will be 8 to 9 a.m., and lunch will be from 11 a.m. to noon.

“Your student can come any time during the offered time period,” Erickson wrote.

Friday is a previously scheduled staff development day, with no classes. And, since schools will be closed Monday in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Erickson also wrote, “We anticipate being back to in-person learning beginning on 1/18/22.”
