High School In Viral Pic To Do Virtual Learning For 2 Days
GEORGIA SCHOOL SEEN IN PHOTO OF A CROWDED HALLWAY WILL BRIEFLY MOVE TO ONLINE LEARNING AFTER REPORTING 9 CASES OF COVID-19
Atlanta, GA (WSB) – A Georgia high school that got national attention for appearing not to follow CDC guidelines has at least nine cases of COVID-19.
The district tells parents North Paulding High School will move to online learning for at least Monday and Tuesday.
Parents of students who attend this school received a letter from superintendent Brian Otott on Sunday.
It says the district will update them on the duration of the virtual learning period Tuesday.
In the meantime, the campus will look empty.
The high school’s principal says six students and three staff members have tested positive and more tests are pending.
Earlier this month, a sophomore posted a photo online of a hallway full of students not wearing masks.
Administrators initially suspended her, but then revoked the punishment.
The superintendent says the school will be cleaned and disinfected before students return.
He says he doesn’t think it’s possible to enforce the use of masks.
