Evansville Day School is moving to remote learning this week.

School Officials confirmed the news with 44News Sunday evening.

Officials say this move comes after a teacher tested positive for COVID-19.

Head of School Kevin Kunst says they hope to return to the classroom on October 19th which will be right after their Fall Break.

Here is the full statement:

"After being informed that a teacher had contracted COVID-19, and with the number of cases and the positivity rate climbing in both Vanderburgh and Warrick counties, we made the decision to shift to our Level 4, which is remote learning, for this week. We want to do our part to limit community spread in the tri-state, and the health and safety of our students and staff is our first priority."

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
