Hempfield High School will move to a two-day virtual learning format Tuesday after multiple cases of COVID-19 were found there this week, the school announced Monday.
Nine total cases of the virus have been discovered at Hempfield High within the past 14 days, forcing the school to temporarily close according to state guidelines, Principal Jim Dague said in a letter to parents Monday. Students who are known to have been in close contact with COVID-positive people will be contacted by the school nurse.
Students will take part in virtual instruction Tuesday and Wednesday, Dague said. Students should not report to the school building either day. Classes are set to resume normally on Thursday, Jan. 28.
