SPRING HILL, TN (WSMV) - Spring Hill High School has announced it will be closed to everyone on Thursday, Sept. 10 to disinfect the school after an increase in positive COVID-19 cases.
School will resume in-person on Wednesday, Sept. 23 except for seniors who will return on Tuesday, Sept. 22 to take their ACT exams.
The school district said there have been a total of 12 positive cases in the six days.
Teachers and staff who do not have any symptoms will return to work on Sept. 11 to teach remotely from their classrooms; they will still be required to wear masks.
If the cases were just among staff members, only classrooms would have been affected and not extracurricular activities.
The school will send an "All Call" with instructions for students, including instructions for seniors on picking up devices.
The school district highly recommends students to stay at home during this time period and not interact with others in the community.
