INDIANAPOLIS–Pike Township Schools is not having class of any kind Wednesday because of staff absences.

“Based on the current number of instructional staff absences for today, Wednesday, November 10th, the district will not offer in-person, virtual, or remote instruction. As a result, today will be made up as a regular school day on March 25th,” said Dr. Flora Reichanadter, superintendent of Metropolitan School District of Pike Township, Wednesday morning.

Late last month, the district and the Pike Classroom Teachers Association said they were negotiating a new collective bargaining agreement.

Teachers shared their frustrations about their pay at a school board meeting October 28.

Students were affected by a bus driver shortage on September 27. The district canceled in-person classes that day. In-person classes were also canceled on October 15.

“We will continue to keep families updated on school calendar changes and we will do everything that is appropriate to address these disruptions. We apologize for the short notice, and thank you for your understanding as we keep adequate supervision and safety of our students and staff a priority,” the district said on Facebook.
