GENEVA, Ala. (WDHN) — Several times daily, Geneva City School Superintendent Ron Snell is
like every other school superintendent statewide.

Before the start of this school year, approximately 10% of Geneva City’s 1,300 students would be out sick.

Now, with just under 10% of the student body testing positive for Coronavirus or one of its variants, they hired permanent subs and intervention employees.

They can be moved to any of the district schools if they have a large number of faculty calling in sick.

Besides students and teachers coming down with COVID, officials say non-instructional personnel like bus drivers and cafeteria workers are just as important in keeping the doors open.
