Less than a week after shutting down its high school, the Eudora school district announced the rest of its students would also switch to remote learning because of a spike in COVID-19 cases within the district.

Eudora Superintendent Steve Splichal said Monday in an email to Eudora families that all of the district’s students would begin remote learning on Tuesday because of outbreaks among students in staff over the last week. According to the district’s website, 23 students and staff have tested positive for the virus since Nov. 2.

The district’s students will remain in remote learning until at least Monday, Nov. 30, which is the first day of school after the district’s Thanksgiving break next week. In the meantime, the school will use the period to deep clean and disinfect school buildings. Additionally, beginning Monday, the district canceled after school activities and athletic events.

Last week, the district announced its high school students were switching to fully remote learning because of an outbreak at the school.
