The Diocese of Evansville has announced that Evansville Memorial High School has moved into a virtual-only schedule for the week of Sept. 21st due to multiple positive cases of COVID-19.
In a news release, the Diocese said six current positive cases has led to a "siginificant number" of students having to quarantine. The school is working with the Vanderburgh County Health Department to make sure the school setting will be appropriate to open.
In an email sent Sunday afternoon to parents, the school said that they had 130 students, which is more than 20% of the student population, that must be under quarantine.
Students will attend a half-day of virtual school on Monday, and then full days of virtual learning for Tuesday through Friday.
While students will be under virtual learning, faculty and staff will report to school at their normal contracted period of time. School lunches will be provided to families that request meals via Google Form.
Athletics will continue to be open to students and coaches who aren't designated as close contacts or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.
