ELMORE COUNTY, Ala. (WSFA) - Several facilities in the Elmore County public school system will return to regularly scheduled in-person learning starting Tuesday, according to Superintendent Richard Dennis.

“Due to the number of faculty and staff absences Holtville Elementary, Wetumpka Elementary and Coosada Elementary and Airport Road Intermediate Schools will observe an e-day tomorrow,” Dennis in a release made Monday afternoon.

Dennis said ECS will evaluate the status of each school on Tuesday to determine if they’ll be able to return to classes on Wednesday. If that is the case, Dennis said his office will notify parents and students.

In addition to in-person learning, the superintendent cautioned that bus routes in some areas will be delayed due to a shortage of drivers and substitute drivers, a problem that could continue through the COVID spike.

On Tuesday, Dennis said that to the number of faculty and staff absences, Holtville Elementary, Wetumpka Elementary, Coosada Elementary, Airport Road Intermediate and Millbrook Middle School will observe an e-day Wednesday. All other Elmore County public schools will be on a regular schedule.

He said they will evaluate the status of each school Wednesday and determine if they are able to adequately return. They will then notify parents and students.

He asks that parents be aware that bus routes in some areas will be delayed due to a shortage of drivers and substitute drivers, saying “This situation may continue for the duration of the COVID spike.”
