Drury High School will go to fully remote learning until after the Thanksgiving holiday after a second individual tested positive for COVID-19.
Grades 7 and 8 had already shifted to remote learning until at least Nov. 19 after an individual reported testing positive on Tuesday.
School officials on Friday learned of a second positive test for COVID-19 in an individual at Drury High School. The shift to remote is an effort "to minimize the risk of additional positive cases," according to a news release on the school district's website from Assistant Superintendent Kimberly Roberts-Morandi.
The high school will be closed and students will be fully remote effective Monday, Nov. 16. Cohort A will resume in-person instruction on Monday, Nov. 30, and Cohort B on Thursday, Dec. 3.
Students who are attending the Greenhouse program or Armory Campus are not affected and will continue their usual schedule, including in-person instruction.
