LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - AUGUST 24: Kellie Goodall teaches an online eighth grade English class from her empty classroom at Walter Johnson Junior High School on the first day of distance learning for the Clark County School District amid the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on August 24, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada. CCSD, the fifth-largest school district in the United States with more than 315,000 students, decided to start the school year with a full-time distance education instructional model as part of its Reopening Our Schools Plan due to health and safety concerns over the pandemic.

The Clark County School District announced on Tuesday that the district will take a five day pause from classes starting this Friday, Jan. 14 due to staffing shortages and concerns over the ongoing pandemic.

According to a press release on Tuesday, the school district is dealing with “extreme staffing shortages.” The shortage of teachers is being magnified by so many teachers, both full time and substitute, calling in sick.

Only two days of actual classes will be missed because of the weekend and the MLK holiday on Monday. Remote learning won’t be held during the pause and there’ll be no extracurricular activities or sports. Classes will resume on Wednesday, Jan. 19.

The missed school days will be made up on Feb. 7 and April 25.
