The Virgin Islands Department of Education St. Croix District announced that Pearl B. Larsen PreK-8, John H. Woodson Jr. High School, and St. Croix Central High School will transition to remote instruction April 22 due to inclement weather.

While recognizing the importance of in-person learning, the VIDE prioritizes the ability of campuses to safely accommodate students, faculty, and staff. Teachers will post and share assignments with students through various platforms, including Schoology, Microsoft Teams, or email. The VIDE will continue to closely monitor the weather and its impact on the campuses, providing updates to the community as necessary, including the resumption of in-person learning, a press release stated.

 In light of this shift to remote instruction, all principals, assistant principals, custodians, paraprofessionals, office staff, monitors, and maintenance personnel are to report to the three campuses as scheduled. Your dedication and support are invaluable as we navigate this transition together efficiently, stated the release.

We appreciate the understanding and cooperation of students, parents, and staff during this time. Together, we will ensure that learning continues uninterrupted while prioritizing the well-being of our school communities, according to the release.
