KELLER (WBAP/KLIF News) – A recent COVID-19 outbreak has lead to a disruption early on in the school year.

The district is transitioning all Fossil Ridge High School employees and students to remote learning Wednesday due to a dozen confirmed cases of COVID-19.

Virtual learning will continue for 14 days, with students and staff returning to campus September 30th.

In a letter to parents, the district said it did not want to take any chances.

“While we have a small number of confirmed positive student and staff cases, it is our adherence to our safety protocols and quarantine guidelines that have left us short staffed. We want to continue to provide our students with the most consistent educational experience without additional interruptions and be sure we are not overwhelming our employees remaining on campus.”

The district said it expects all students to formally begin remote learning Monday, September 21, to provide time to ensure that students are properly equipped with devices to help them learn virtually.

The order includes Remote@KISD students and their teachers.

According to the letter, students and families will receive additional information in the next few days.
