Newburgh, Indiana's Sharon Elementary School said Wednesday that one of its classrooms of students would have to quarantine for the next two weeks "due to an increase in positive COVID-19 cases" in the classroom.

The announcement was made in the form of a letter addressed to parents/guardians, and said that all students, parents and staff in the classroom that is being quarantined had been notified.

After two weeks pass, on Nov. 18, students and staff will be allowed to return to in-person school.

The school said in its letter that the class was being quarantined as a precautionary measure as to err on the side of safety for all students and staff of the school.

Quarantined students will be learning virtually and using packets during their time in quarantine, and will receive daily instruction from a teacher, according to the school's letter.
