Volusia County Schools have sent out a release extending their closure through May 1 and urge families and students to continue the uses of Virtual and Distance Learning until schools open.


The release came viz email from Volusia County School Districts Community Information Officer Kelly Schulz.


At this time all extra-curricular activities like field trips and sporting events are canceled, all meetings will be held virtually, and there are discussions to be held regarding prom and graduation.


Virtual and Distance Learning started today, March 30, and some of the software like Edgenuity and Microsoft Teams experienced temporary issues due to high usage volume. Changes are being made to handle the high amount of usage nationwide.


If anyone has any questions regarding the use of Virtual Instruction, they are being urged to call the Virtual Online Instructional Support Hotline at (386) 626-0070.
