The Adams County Health Department also announced this week a small outbreak of Coronavirus cases and is advising anyone who attended a downtown Decatur concert July 30th or spent time at the Wet Spot bar the same night to monitor themselves.
North Adams students were supposed to begin class this week, but a potential COVID-19 case caused the district to postpone its first day back until Monday, August 17th. That date has been changed again.
Now, the district will begin the year with all students learning virtually.
Students will pick up their devices Monday, August 17th and start e-learning the following day, August 18th.
An open house at Bellmont High School scheduled for this Sunday has been canceled. So, too, have all middle and high school athletics, until August 31st.
