Due to an increase of Covid-19 cases in Dickinson County related to the number of students quarantined at Abilene Middle School, Superintendent Greg Brown issued the following statement about AMS going to remote learning.
Good afternoon, this is Greg Brown, Superintendent of Schools for Abilene, USD #435. Due to the ever increasing numbers of students who are not able to attend school because they have tested positive for COVID-19 or they have been placed in quarantine, we have made the decision to go to fully remote instruction for our middle school students for at least one week. Students will not be in class in the building beginning tomorrow morning, Wednesday, November 12th and remain in remote instruction through next Tuesday, November 17th. We will re-evaluate our status next Monday and provide a message about when we might return at that time. Again, the 6th, 7th and 8th graders will all be in remote learning from Wednesday, November 12th through Tuesday, November 17th. The girls’ basketball teams and the wrestling team will not have practices or competition during this time as well.
