Yukon Schools Superintendent Dr. Jason Simeroth has announced the district will have virtual classes for the first nine weeks.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the district, and positive cases have been reported with staff and students, Simeroth said.

The district will provide devices for students for virtual learning. The first day of school for fall is Thursday, Aug. 20.

“Rest assured that the district is closely monitoring several sources of information and will not permit a return to the traditional pathway until it is deemed safe for students and staff,” a statement on the district’s website reads.

A special school board meeting by Zoom was scheduled for Tuesday night.
