Three Kenosha Unified School District schools will remain on virtual learning for another week, following last week's move due to a teacher call-in.

On Sunday evening, the district notified parents that Bradford, Indian Trail and Lincoln schools would remain on virtual learning for the week, due to student and staff quarantines related to COVID-19.

Last week, the district said more than 276 teachers called-in sick on Sept. 21. Harborside, Lakeview, Reuther, and Tremper, along with the other 3 schools, were moved to virtual learning. The school district said most of thecall-ins were for valid reasons.

"We know how frustrating this is for some of our families, but we appreciate your understanding in knowing that we must make adjustments in order to serve our students. Together we will get through this," wrote the district on its Facebook page.

Staff who has been in close contact with individuals, and are required to quarantine, will be able to teach virtually from home, the district said.

Students at the three schools will be expected to log in to classes at their scheduled time Sept. 28 through Oct. 2.
