Webster County High School announced Friday that its students would be switching to virtual learning for the next two weeks at least.
According to the statement released by the high school, the decision to go virtual comes due to the high number of staff members associated with the school that are currently quarantined.
"As you all know, we continue to see an increase in COVID cases as well as an increase in quarantines among staff and students," WCHS said Friday. "Due to the number of staff quarantines, we have made the decision for the high school to begin remote learning."
Students will start learning virtually as of Monday, Nov. 9, and the virtual learning will continue for at least two weeks of instruction.
The school says that after those two weeks are over, the situation will be reassessed and new learning options will be announced.
