The COVID-19 pandemic continues to loom over the delivery of education all across the country. It is no different in the Denair Unified School District, where half the campuses will remain on 100% distance learning for at least another week because of health concerns.
Superintendent Terry Metzger delivered an update on the district’s situation Thursday night to trustees and the public.
