Students at Blue Mountain High School will attend all classes virtually for the rest of November, the district announced Friday.
After telling more than two dozen people – including students and staff – to self-quarantine last week, the school announced on Friday that it learned over another student testing positive for COVID-19.
When the school conducted a contact tracing investigation, it then realized there were about 100 people, in total, told to self-quarantine last week. So, on Friday, a decision was made to move the entire Blue Mountain High School to an all-virtual format for the rest of the month. That starts Monday and runs through the end of classes on Nov. 25, next Wednesday.
In-person classes are set to resume on Dec. 1, when students return from the Thanksgiving break.
The virtual schedule applies to Blue Mountain High students attending Schuylkill Technology Center. And this move to a virtual setting only applies to Blue Mountain High School.
Blue Mountain’s decision follows a similar choice made by Saint Clair Area school officials last week:
- County Defends Election Workers from Attack That Never Happened
- Schuylkill County Completes Ballot Counting – Vote Analysis
- Tri-Valley School District Back to Full Virtual Schedule Following Positive COVID Tests, Quarantines
