CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - The Iowa Department of Education has approved a waiver allowing Hoover Elementary to conduct classes entirely remotely this week.

The Cedar Rapids Community School District applied for the temporary waiver in response to increasing COVID-19 cases among staff at the school, or staff from the school being in isolation.

Starting Monday, the school will begin the remote learning model for all grade levels for a period of five school days. In-person learners will return to the school on November 16.

The district said the school has planned for the scenario and is ready to make the transition to online learning.
