Fairfield High School will begin full remote learning as of Thursday afternoon.
District 225 and the Wayne County Health Department report several people at the school have tested positive for COVID-19, and several others are in quarantine because of potential exposure.
Because of that, the district has decided to move to remote learning for all students. Administrators say teachers will have a planning day tomorrow (Friday), and students will begin the new format on Tuesday. The remote format will run at least two weeks, and both the school district and health department are urging students and families to follow social distancing guidelines to bring the infections down.
Administrators say they're working to help identify teachers and students who may have been exposed to the coronavirus, and they'll also take the two weeks without people in the building to do a deep cleaning and prepare to bring students back to the classroom.
