County Schools Update

(La Porte County, IN) - Area county school districts continue to refine their plans for the start of school, which is only a few weeks away. 


Yesterday, South Central Community Schools announced they will start the year 100% virtual.  Administrators say students will be kept out of South Central classrooms until further notice.


Schools in LaCrosse and Wanatah are using a stoplight system similar to La Porte's to manage COVID risks.  But they have also recently added a virtual-only option for families who don't want to take any chances.


This week New Prairie made a similar move, announcing an online academy option.  New Prairie plans to open with 50% attendance, meaning students attend school every other day.
