(WXXV) — Governor Tate Reeves announced Tuesday afternoon that schools in Mississippi will remain closed for the remainder of the school year to slow the spread of COVID-19.

To ensure that Mississippi students’ education continues through the remainder of the school year, Governor Reeves is asking every school to submit distance learning plans to mitigate and enhance their learning. He is also asking that educators prepare for distance learning for summer and early fall.

“I know how hard teachers, students, all staff, and parents have been working during this dangerous time. You have my deep respect and sincere admiration. It has been so encouraging to see the efforts of our education community to protect the people of Mississippi while ensuring learning takes place. I know our education community will do whatever it takes to make sure Mississippi kids don’t fall behind,” said Governor Tate Reeves.

Gov. Reeves will issue an executive order with details for school districts to develop enhanced learning plans for their students and their communities.
