“Thanks to a proactive response by the student and our district staff, the high school student was not at SHS, nor in any classroom, this entire week,” the email stated.
Two students at the high school and one at Clearcreek Elementary School have tested positive in the Springboro district.
“This is the first student who has been in a classroom,” Scott Marshall, the district’s communication coordinator, said in an email response to questions.
The district has taken additional safeguards.
“Some recent additional steps for our athletic teams will be less contact drills during practice, as well as having the varsity and junior varsity teams practice separately or apart from one another, in order to create more spacing. The freshmen team was already practicing separately from varsity and junior varsity. We will continue to have temperature and symptom checks for all players/coaches before each practice and game,” Marshall said.
Also on Monday, Troy school officials said two Troy City Schools staff members and one student have tested positive for COVID-19 “in recent days,” as the district began its second week of classes.
Superintendent Chris Piper said now that students and staff members are back to in-person classes, “it is inevitable” that some may test positive for COVID-19.
