Wetmore school to move to remote learning
09/16/2020

(KMZA)--The Wetmore Academic Center will move to remote learning after a third positive case of COVID-19 was confirmed at the school Wednesday.

Prairie Hills USD 113 Superintendent Todd Evans, in a letter to Wetmore families, said they will not have in-person classes Thursday and Friday.   

Evans said there is the possibility, depending on additional positive cases, that remote learning will continue next week.

The district was notified Wednesday that a second Wetmore student had tested positive for COVID-19.  That came after the district received word Tuesday that an adult employee at the school had tested positive.

Evans said the Kansas Department of Health and Environment said the three positive cases are considered a " cluster." 

Counting all absences, Wetmore’s Pre-K-12 grade attendance rate for Wednesday was 40%--including 28 percent who were absent because of being quarantined.

In consideration of the school's absence rate, Evans said KDHE advised they move to remote learning.  

All activities and practices have been canceled through Sunday.

The Prairie Hills school district has seen five positive cases of COVID-19 involving students and staff since last Friday.
