Biloxi High School to switch to distance learning until September 8th

As was reported last week, Biloxi High School saw an increase in the number of positive Covid cases and quarantined students.

As of today, BHS has 15 positive students and 324 students on quarantine.

All other Biloxi School campuses will remain open.

Distance learning consists of live instruction delivered by BHS teachers during each scheduled class period of the day via Google Classroom and Google Meet.

BHS students already have their Chromebook in hand, login credentials for Google Classroom, and experience navigating the system. BHS Teacher Tyler James said, “We’ve been preparing teachers. We’ve been preparing students. We have teams of teachers who are helping with people who are technologically not as savvy as the rest of us. So, I mean, we definitely put a lot of work into preparing both teachers and staff.”

Out of an abundance of caution and an effort to stop this current spread, school officials have made the decision to switch all BHS students to full distance learning until Tuesday, September 8. This includes all extracurricular activities during this time.
