Gov. Mifflin high and middle schools go virtual due to staffing shortages

Staffing shortages have led Gov. Mifflin high school and middle school to temporarily go virtual.

A message posted to the school district’s social media accounts Tuesday said students at both buildings will learn remotely Wednesday through Friday. Students have off for Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday and will return to in-person learning on Tuesday.

The message does not indicate how many staff members are currently out or whether COVID is to blame for the shortage. District officials could not immediately be reached Wednesday morning.

The district’s COVID dashboard shows there have been 126 total COVID cases reported at the high school since Jan. 1 and 65 reported at the middle school over that span.

Of those cases, 14 are among staff at the high school and seven are among staff at the middle school, according to the dashboard.

Virtual classes at the two schools will be held live. Cold grab-and-go lunches will be available for pick-up each day from 11 a.m. to noon at the main offices of the two schools.

The building closures will not impact transportation for students who attend the Berks Career and Technology Center or extracurricular activities.
