Centreville Public Schools plans to go virtual for three days starting Wednesday.
During Monday’s board of education meeting, superintendent Stephanie Lemmer said rising COVID numbers impacting students and staff, coupled with the lack of substitute assistance, justified the recommendation.
Lemmer said the district was informed late Sunday of additional student and staff cases. On Monday, efforts were made to contact trace and to notify more than 150 families of close-contact cases.
She said at the end of the school day Monday, there were five additional positive cases and one staff member.
The district started the day Monday with 110 students absent due to illness. By the end of day, 50 more students had left school because of illness.
