FRANKLIN COUNTY, Pa. — On Wednesday, the Chambersburg Area High School announced their move to online classes starting on Nov. 12, after a positive case of COVID-19.
The current case and previous COVID-19 cases have left many staff members unable to provide in-person teaching. The school said the move to online classes is out of an abundance of caution.
Return to in-person classes is tentatively planned for Dec. 3.
People who were in direct contact with the COVID-19 positive person will be contacted by school staff.
Students, in both AA and BB schedules, can pick up personal items from the school on Nov. 12 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Online classes will start at 12:15 p.m.
The school will be deep cleaned and disinfected while it is closed. The Department of Health is providing guidance to the school and those in direct contact with COVID-19 positive people.
