Officials at Davis Public Schools announced that they would be switching to remote learning on Thursday, Jan. 13 and Friday, Jan. 14 due to “an unsustainable shortage of staff and substitutes as well as excessive student absences.”

The district says it is proceeding with student activities as long as possible.
Deer Creek Middle School moved to remote learning for Wednesday, Jan. 12 through Friday, Jan. 14.

(KTVX) – As the omicron variant rips through our communities, it seems like we all have a friend, family member, or coworker who is sick with or has recently recovered from the coronavirus.
But despite the recent surge, some companies have reduced COVID sick time to align with the amended CDC policy, which states that people with COVID need only to quarantine for a minimum of five days, as opposed to the previous ten. Walmart recently announced its policy would align with the CDC guidance, and cut its COVID paid sick leave in half.
