MT. JULIET, Tenn. (WKRN) — A school in Mount Juliet is transitioning its high school students to online learning through fall break after two teachers tested positive for COVID-19, according to an email sent to parents.
The Mount Juliet Christian Academy high school students will transition to Saints Online Learning, according to Head of School, Brig Thompson.
The email notes on Monday, a teacher called in stating they weren’t feeling well. They got tested out of caution. That teacher recalled being around a few other teachers, and they also got tested for COVID-19.
The email states two of those results came back positive Wednesday afternoon. Out of caution, Thompson wrote that school officials made the decision to transition to online learning for all high school students until fall break.
The message to parents states officials will be reaching out to further explain high school schedules, but for now, students classes will match the same day and times as their current in-person schedule.
Thursday will be a transition and communication day and not regularly scheduled classes. Friday students will begin normal schedules and times.
In the email, Thompson thanked parents for their cooperation and prayers during an “incredibly challenging season” and wrote they were looking forward to returning in-person after Fall Break and hopefully the school’s “new campus”.
