CLEVELAND — Cleveland Metro Schools announced Wednesday that when classes resume after the holiday break, learning will be conducted virtually. 

The district said that school will be held virtually from Jan. 4-7 as it monitors the spread of COVID-19. The staff professional day on Jan. 3 will also occur virtually, the district said. 

District superintendent Eric Gordon said that all schools will be open for families to pick up meals. Gordon said that parents can pick up food at the nearest school, even if it is not the school that their children attend.

Schools will also be open Jan. 3 for students to pick up laptops, tablets or any other school materials students might need during the week of online learning. 

Extracurricular activities will be limited to essential games and practices during the week, with attendance to extra curricular activities held to three guests per student. 

“We will continue to monitor health data throughout the week to determine our ability to return to in-person learning, hopefully for the week of Jan. 10.
