(BROWNSTOWN) – Lutheran Central School in Brownstown is moving to virtual instruction after a second employee has tested positive for COVID-19, according to a letter sent to parents by Principal Jon Sprengel.
Another staff member and students who were in close contact with that teacher have been notified, Sprengel wrote.
“We certainly understand that this decision presents many challenges for you as parents, and we apologize for the inconvenience this will cause,” Sprengel wrote. “However, the health and safety of our staff, students and families is very important to us.”
Due to the virus’ impact on the school’s staff members, all students in preschool through eighth grade will have virtual instruction this week until Friday.
There will be no virtual instruction today. Families can pick up their children’s learning material and Chrombooks between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Call the school office at 812-358-2512 upon arrival and a staff member will bring the materials out to your car.
During the school closure, a deep cleaning of the building will be performed.
Officials will continue to monitor the situation and make a determination on Friday, Oct. 26th in regards on when and if students will return to in-person learning.
Basketball practices scheduled for this week are canceled.
