Schools cancel classes in response to COVID-19


Unprecedented times call for unprecedented measures.

All public and parochial schools in Jackson County will be closing after today until at least April 6 to curb the potential spread of coronavirus or COVID-19 locally, officials said.

During that time, all Seymour Community School Corp. facilities will be closed for school and community events, including sports, clubs and youth programs.

Brandon Harpe, superintendent of Seymour Community School Corp., announced Friday the district will utilize eLearning beginning March 23. Seymour is on spring break until then.

Students will be expected to complete assignments and stay in contact with their teachers online using their school-issued Chromebooks or by phone during designated times.
