Pittsburg USD 250 cancels school for rest of week

PITTSBURG, Kan. – Pittsburg USD 250 closes for the remainder of the week (Jan. 13-14). The district sites staff shortages due to Covid-19 as the cause.

According to an email sent to parents,

“Due to staff shortages, USD 250 will be closed on Thursday, 1/13/22 through Friday, 1/14/22. As a reminder, Monday is a scheduled day for No School. Students and staff will return on Tuesday, 1/18/22. Please see the attached letter for more information.”

Monday is a holiday, so students and staff will be in school again on Tuesday, January 18, 2022.

USD 250 is not requiring students to engage in school work in an online format during cancellation. “This will provide us with a five (5) day period to help our
positive students and staff recover and diminish the chance of person to person transmission in our school buildings,” states the district in a letter attached to the email.

The school district states that a high number of teachers, paraprofessionals and classified staff members are positive or in quarantine as of today, January 12, 2022.

Extra-curricular activities that are able will continue as scheduled. The district is asking those involved to wear masks while in school facilities. Students who participate in extra-curricular activities will need to continue to “Test to Play” (if already in the Testing Program) to be eligible for participation.
