CINCINNATI (FOX19) - After nearly 15 weeks of providing in-person learning, Madeira students will be moving to remote learning.

“The prevalence of the virus has begun to impact our schools in four major areas: our staffing thresholds, our numbers of positive cases, our current rate of incidence, and our number of quarantined students and staff,” the district said on its website.

According to Superintendent Kenji Matsudo, the move to remote learning will follow these guidelines:

  • Monday, Dec. 7: A calamity transition day for teachers to plan and move their entire classroom instruction to online - No students PK-12 (except 5th Grade) will be Zooming in for classroom instruction. MMS 5th grade students who were already transitioning to remote learning will be Zooming on Monday.
  • Tuesday, Dec. 8: All students PK-12 will begin remote learning through the end of the semester, Friday 12/18.
  • The district will also be “pausing” on Athletic teams and extracurriculars at MHS and MMS with no games or practices for the week of Dec. 6 - Dec. 13.

“As we have worked tirelessly to provide opportunities for our in-person and at-home learners this school year, we are needing to be flexible and responsive to our situation and make the necessary adjustments needed on behalf of our students and staff. Our Madeira HealthWatch Assessment Team will continue to monitor our data with a goal of returning to in-person learning beginning in January,” Matsudo said.
