NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Two Metro Schools staffers have tested positive for COVID-19 and 18 others have been forced to quarantine following a recent planning session at Smith Springs Elementary School.
A spokesman for the school district said the staffers tested positive on July 17 and July 19 after the planning session earlier this month. One of the staffers later tested negative for COVID-19. No additional positive tests have been reported among those who quarantined.
The staffers who tested positive were not full-time classroom teachers but would both regularly deal with students during a normal school year.
Metro Schools begin on Tuesday, Aug. 4. Students will be in a virtual learning environment through at least Labor Day.
