More cases of COVID-19 continue to affect Evansville Memorial High School.
In an email sent to parents on Tuesday, the school reported that they were notified of four additional students and one employee, who is a coach, tested positive for COVID-19.
The students and coach are in isolation.
The school is already in virtual learning mode this week due to six students testing positive and the need to quarantine 130 students who had close contact. Because of the move, the school told parents in the email that there was no additional notifications for close contact following the latest cases.
Despite the positve cases, the school said that they feel confident in the decision to move to virtual learning this week. Classes continue to be taught live via Zoom at the normal scheduled class times. Faculity and staff are still at the high school, teaching the classes online.
No word if the virtual learning will stretch past this week. The school ask parents continue to contact them and report any students with COVID symptoms and/or a test result. This will lead to a decision about the upcoming weeks.
