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.

Conditions are dry, but chilly. Winds have strengthened out of the north making it feel bitterly cold. As we head into the overnight hours temperatures will fall into the mid 20s. As winds stay gusty out of the north it will make it feel more like the teens Sunday morning under clear skies. The majority of the Tri-State will remain dry come Sunday afternoon. There is a slim chance that some of our communities across the far southern reaches of the Tri-State could see some light snowfall early in the afternoon, but it's looking like it will stay south and east of the Tri-State. We'll climb to a high temperature of 38° with sunny and breezy conditions. Gusts out of the north could reach 25-30 MPH.
