Local schools adjusting schedule after coronavirus outbreak

By JOSH TROY / PRESS REGISTER,

All high schools in Coahoma County are scheduled to open after spring break next week, but due to the coronavirus, three of the districts are not going back until Tuesday.

 

The Clarksdale and Coahoma County school districts and Clarksdale Collegiate Public Charter School will be closed Monday and open again on Tuesday.

Coahoma Community College's classes have been delayed until Monday, March 23 and all athletics have been suspended. The Mississippi Association of Community Colleges suspended all athletics earlier this week. 

Lee Academy will report to school Monday and meet that afternoon to discuss contingency plans should cancellations occur. Coahoma Early College High School students will also report for class Monday.
