Algonquin Elementary School moving to all-virtual following COVID-19 outbreak | #coronavirus | #kids. | #children | #schools

Algonquin Elementary is moving to all-virtual instruction next week in an attempt to mitigate a COVID-19 outbreak among students and staff. 

In a letter to parents, principal Brooklynn Lestage said in-person instruction will be paused at the elementary school on Monday. Students who are healthy and symptom-free may return to school on Nov. 15. 

Algonac Community Schools Superintendent Al Latosz said the pause will comply with a 10 day quarantine, as students would not be in school Friday since it is an in-service work day for staff.

Latosz said a total of nine COVID-19 cases were identified in the elementary school last week, the majority of which were in sixth grade. Sixth grade moved to all-virtual instruction Tuesday after several more cases were identified in the grade Monday.
