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.
