Another local school temporarily suspended campus instruction

WACO, Texas (KWTX) – Students at Wako Tennyson Middle School will be able to learn from afar this week, the school’s principal, Matt Rambo, said in a letter to parents Monday evening after four people on campus tested positive for Covid-19.

He said in the letter that more than 20 employees would leave on Tuesday after either testing positive or coming into close contact with someone who tested positive.

“We are reporting to the families of any students and any staff who were in close contact with those who tested positive. Those students and staff have been asked to be segregated as per the guidelines of the CDC, ”he said in the letter.

The on-campus notification is set to resume next Monday.

“However, we will continue to monitor cases of new students and the number of staff testing positive for the virus, as well as the number of close contacts required for quarantine as a result of any new cases. If this plan changes, we will let you know as soon as possible, “Rambo said in the letter.
