Monday started the district's fourth week of in-person learning.

In the first three weeks of school, three students have tested positive for COVID-19, along with a Blair Oaks After School Y-Care employee and a middle school staff member.

The only case that resulted in close contacts having to quarantine was the middle school staff member. Fifteen students had to quarantine after they were identified as close contacts.
