Valley Center school officials said Thursday that students at the high school will go to remote learning because of an increase in local COVID-19 cases.
In a statement on Facebook, Valley Center superintendent Cory Gibson made the following statement:
In the last couple of days, we’ve experienced a spike in the number of staff, students, and their families being directly impacted by the Covid 19 virus. As a result, Valley Center High School will be closed on October 30, 2020. All high school students will follow the remote learning day schedule tomorrow. If interested in a school-provided meal on Friday, please click the link titled, “At-Home Meal Service Order Form Link” located on the front page of our district’s website.
We will share additional details soon.
Valley Center has also cancelled the Friday night football game with Bishop Carroll of Wichita. At least seven players and coaches for the Valley Center football team have tested positive for COVID-19. Other team members are being tested because they have symptoms, and a number of players are being required to stay at home.
