Berkshire County is seeing its highest amount of COVID-19 cases since the pandemic began, and now, more schools have made the decision to temporarily switch to fully remote learning.
All schools in the Hoosac Valley Regional School District will be fully remote for two weeks. In a letter to families, Superintendent Aaron Dean said there are several COVID-19 cases in the community with direct link to all three schools in the district.
In North Adams, Drury High School will also be going remote after two people at the school tested positive late last week. The rest of the city's schools are unaffected and will remain open using a hybrid learning model.
In Dalton, Wahconah Regional High School is also shifting to remote learning.
These closures follow Pittsfield Public Schools' decision to go fully remote for all students last week.
Both Hoosac Valley and Drury plan to return to hybrid learning the week of November 30, but the date could be pushed back if there are more cases related to the schools.
