CSHS Transitions to Remote Learning November 24 & 25

Due to the lack of substitute teachers, Canton South High School students will transition to remote learning on Tuesday, November 24 and Wednesday, November 25. Walker Elementary and Faircrest Memorial Middle schools will remain open.

High school teachers will send remote learning information and schedules. Canton South staff members will be available during school hours for instruction and questions.

Countywide we are experiencing a shortage of substitute teachers and the shortage is one of the main reasons why we have been forced to close a classroom, grade level or an entire building.
