Augusta schools go online, citing COVID-19 cases

Students in Augusta, about an hour northwest of Helena, are shifting to online learning this week after COVID-19 cases were detected in the schools.

Augusta Public Schools Superintendent Kim Ramorini sent a letter to parents on Friday notifying them about two COVID cases. Ramorini told YPR that since then more cases have been detected affecting multiple grade levels. Grades K-12 went remote Monday.

Teachers have professional working days later this week. Ramorini says the plan is to return to in-person learning next Monday.

That’s also when schools in Livingston plan to return to in person learning after the middle school and high school there went online as a result of high COVID-19 transmission.

Earlier this week, schools in Glasgow and Darby shifted to online learning because of staffing shortages.
