Many Medford students will return to class today, but their teachers won’t be there. District teachers have been on strike since Thursday.
After being closed for three days while the Medford School District made strike preparations, schools are reopening today with half-day schedules.
The Medford Mail Tribune reports that Superintendent Phil Long would not verify exactly how many substitutes the district had hired. He also declined comment on the number of teachers who had decided to return to school despite the strike.
