TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif. - Some Tehama County schools are switching gears and going virtual to kick off the new semester.

Some classrooms in Tehama County will remain empty at the start of school.

“I guess I was glad she wasn't going to have to sit in a classroom with all that's going on,” said one Tehama County grandparent.

While some families are okay with distance learning, others want to see their children back in the classroom.

“I think it's going to set the kids back and they should let them go back to school,” said Randi Delf of Tehama County.

Some schools pushed back their first days so that teachers can get ready for distance learning.

“There's a couple of districts that are putting off start dates for a week or so just to get more up to speed on distance learning,” said Rich DuVarney the Tehama County Superintendent of Schools.

Red Bluff Union Elementary School District saw about 400 families support distance learning. With so many supporting virtual classes, the district found it didn't have the staff or the money to also do in-person classes.

“Considering the circumstances, I think it’s the best choice for right now,” said one grandparent. “I’m hoping we can go back to school, the kids need interaction with other kids.”

The Corning Union Elementary School District is also starting its first eight weeks of school with distance learning.
