WACO, TX – University High School students are learning remotely for the remainder of the week after 12 people who’ve been on campus tested positive for COVID-19.
The school’s principal, Ricky Edison, notified parents Tuesday night.
“The increasing number of cases is a cause for concern,” he said in the message.
“It also means that a large number of both students and staff will be out for the rest of the week after testing positive or being in close contact with someone who tested positive.
In-person instruction will resume on Jan. 5 after the Christmas holiday.
Students who need to make up end-of-course exams may take the tests in person on campus and students who also attend the Greater Waco Advanced Health Care Academy or the Greater Waco Advanced Manufacturing Academy may continue to attend those classes in person, Edison said, but will need to arrange their own transportation.
Students without transportation should participate in classes remotely.
