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.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
