COVID outbreak prompts return to remote learning for some area grade schoolers
PEORIA (25 NEWS) - An area school administrator is announcing a return to remote learning for kids attending Pleasant Hill Elementary School in Peoria because of a COVID-19 outbreak.
In-person learning will resume after Thanksgiving break on Monday, November 29.
“Several individuals” have tested positive for the virus, said Superintendent and Principal Lisa Weaver in social media post to families and staff.
“We are coordinating our efforts with the Peoria City County Health Department to promptly identify and monitor individuals who have had recent contact with the COVID-19 positive individual(s) to prevent further spread within our school and community,” said Weaver.
“As a result of the increased number of positive COVID-19 cases, the small size of our school district, and the overwhelming need to keep our staff and students safe and healthy, the Health Department has recommended we move to an adaptive pause in in-person learning,” Weaver also said.
