Coronavirus

SANDUSKY, Ohio (WJW) – The Sandusky City School District announced Sunday that both Sandusky Middle School and Sandusky High School would transition to virtual learning due to a rise in COVID-19 cases.

“This transition is an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19 cases within the high school and middle school buildings,” the District wrote in a press release.

The virtual learning period is scheduled from Tuesday, August 31 through Friday, September 3.

The schools will be open Monday so students can pick up any materials they need.

The Erie County Health Department will also be on hand to provide rapid coronavirus tests.

Students are scheduled to return on Tuesday, September 7, but that will be updated by Labor Day, school leaders say.

The District says the decision to send students home was made in collaboration with the Erie County Health Department.

They plan on updating parents weekly on new COVID-19 cases.
