Russellville City Schools students are waking up to a week of online classes.
It's important to note that the district is not making the shift because of any coronavirus cases in schools. The change is a proactive switch just in case there is a spike after Labor Day like we've seen with holidays in the past.
That way, no one exposed unknowingly would come to school and spread the virus in the next week. At the same time, the school district is treating this week as a trial run, in case the system does need to switch to online classes.
The district is also continuing its meal program at Russellville Elementary from 10 a.m. to noon.
