Florida State University School is shifting 6th to 12th grade classes to remote learning as of Wednesday, Sept. 23.

The school’s superintendent, Stacy Chambers, posted a note to Facebook saying that despite hiring 15 additional Teaching Assistants and extra substitute teachers, the school doesn’t have adequate classroom coverage.

She says elementary students will continue with on campus instruction, and the older students can return to campus on October 13th - the beginning of the second 9 weeks.
