INDIANAPOLIS — Metropolitan School District of Pike Township students will have to wait a bit longer to return to the classroom, as the district announced it will continue with remote instruction through at least Jan. 12.
In a Facebook post early Monday morning, the district said the extension of remote instruction was due to additional driver illnesses and isolations reported that morning. MSD of Pike Township students have not returned for in-person instruction since winter break.
The district said it will provide an update on Wednesday regarding a possible return to in-person instruction on Thursday.
The Early Learning Center will be open with its normal schedule.
This isn't the first time this school year that transportation issues have led to the cancellation of in-person instruction for Pike Township students. The district moved to remote instruction for two straight days in September due to bus driver shortages.
In mid-December, Pike Township teachers and school district reached an agreement on a new collective bargaining contract.
