Students in the Little Rock School District will be taking classes virtually for at least two days because of an increase in COVID-19 cases, Superintendent Michael Poore said.

A large number of people were out when classes resumed Wednesday because they were diagnosed with COVID-19 or were quarantined, Poore said in a video message.

"That impacted transportation to food service to teachers and classified staff and, of course, we had a large number of students out," Poore said. "I say this with respect (to) the fact (of) how important we know in-person (learning) is, but I need to tell you that we are going to shift for the next two days to be in a virtual delivery for instruction."

Seventh and eighth-graders in the North Little Rock School District also are learning virtually, according to a post on the school system's website.

Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson said Tuesday that COVID-19 cases are skyrocketing because of the highly contagious omicron variant. The state set a one-day record Wednesday with an additional 7,488 cases, Hutchinson said in a Twitter post. Forty-four hospitalizations were reported.
