LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLF) — Lafayette School Corporation has voted to continue offering e-learning for the second semester of school.
The decision was made at the Monday night School Board meeting. This decision will allow students who are currently e-learning to continue doing so for the rest of the year. The school board did make a change though.

If a student is currently taking classes online, they can switch to in-person classes if they chose to.
Superintendent Les Huddle says they wanted to give families the option to change their form of instruction.
“For a family to change from E-learning to in person we will just ask them to fill out a form so we have the child's name their grade level and we have a signature from the parent," said Superintendent Huddle.
Currently, students who are taking classes in person aren't able to switch to virtual learning unless they are exposed to COVID-19 and must quarantine, or they provide a doctor's note to the district showing they or someone they live with is considered a high-risk individual.
Huddle says strict COVID-19 protocol will continue to be practiced for the remainder of the year.
