FRANKLIN, TN (WSMV) - Three Williamson County high schools will continue remote learning this week after several staff and students at those schools either tested positive or were exposed to a positive COVID-19 case.

Students at Independence High in Thompson's Station, Summit High in Spring Hill and Page High in Franklin converted to remote learning last week after a number of staff and students were placed in quarantine because of contact tracing.

Independence and Page both moved to remote learning last week after several positive COVID-19 cases and number of students and staff in quarantine due to contract tracing.

Williamson County Schools reported on last Tuesday (Sept. 29) that 19 staff members and 58 students throughout the system were in isolation with a confirmed positive case and 29 staff members and 1,532 students were in quarantine due to exposure to a positive case. Williamson County Schools releases updated numbers of staff and students with positive cases and those in quarantine each Tuesday at 3 p.m. Last week there were cases at 37 of the district's 49 schools and the district office.
