INDIANAPOLIS — Eight IPS middle schools and high schools are moving to e-learning on Thursday and Friday because of staffing issues.

“This decision has been made based on the number of staff absences, including COVID-19 isolation and quarantines at the middle and high school levels. Transitioning to remote learning also gives time for affected staff and students to meet the 5-day isolation and quarantine period before returning back to school,” IPS said Wednesday.

Schools that will be on remote learning are:

Middle Schools

  • Arlington Middle School
  • Harshman Middle School
  • Henry W. Longfellow Medical/STEM Middle School 28
  • Northwest Middle School (including Newcomer)

High Schools

  • Arsenal Technical High School
  • Crispus Attucks High School
  • George Washington High School
  • Shortridge High School

There is no school for students or staff on Monday, Jan. 17, in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and no school for students on Tuesday, Jan. 18, because of professional development.

IPS anticipates a return to in-person learning at all schools on Wednesday, Jan. 19, but says it will provide families with an update no later than Tuesday.
