Officials say the students identified as COVID-19 positive didn’t come into close contact with every student, but the district says it’s “proceeding with an abundance of caution and considering each of these as close contacts.”

“These students and staff members were placed into a 14-day quarantine at home in accordance with the Decision Guide requirements,” the district added. “Their classes will pivot to the virtual learning model using Canvas and Zoom as their learning platform.”
