FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) - Northwest Allen County Schools officials say students will be learning from home on Friday amid staffing issues.

According to a release, there is not enough staff available to open the building to students. The district says some of the shortage comes from positive COVID-19 cases among the staff at Carroll Middle School

“We cannot staff and supervise the building safely tomorrow, therefore, our best option is to use eLearning for the day,” said Brandon Basham, principal, Carroll Middle School.

Meal packets are being sent home with students at the end of the day Thursday. If parents need to make other meal arrangements, they are asked to call the school’s front office tomorrow at (260) 637-5159.
