County school and health officials announced Wednesday, Sept. 23, a positive case of COVID-19 has been identified at the high school. Sports and activities are also suspended.
School officials said the single case is a staff member and the decision to move to remote learning was made after the health department completed contact tracing. Deep cleaning and sanitizing will be completed before the school is reopened.
