Some students not checking in during distance learning

VERMILLION, S.D. (WNAX) – After classes were dismissed in mid-March, school districts had to scramble to put together distance learning packets and online classes. In that scramble some kids may have been lost.

Vermillion Public School Superintendent Damon Alvey says they surveyed their families early on.

Alvey says they lost contact with about two dozen students.


Alvey says they sent teams out to see if they could make contact with those missing students.

Alvey says they hope many of those students return when classes start in the fall. He says they are planning remedial sessions to help all students get caught up.
