WARREN – Effectively immediately, Warren G. Harding High School is transitioning all of its students to online/remote learning only.
The move to online/remote learning is effective Friday, Nov. 13. Teachers and related support staff will report to work.
The district anticipates keeping this schedule in place for at least two (2) weeks with the earliest return to in-person learning on Monday, Nov. 30.
Over the past 24 hours, Warren City Schools has experienced an increase in our COVID-19 data at Harding and we have received confirmation in the last 24 hours of a staff member and two students testing positive with Coronavirus.
These cases do not appear to be related, and contact tracing has been taking place and will continue. Any individual who has been determined to be a contact by definition will be immediately notified by an administrator or school nurse within the Warren City School District. That individual will be directed to quarantine, and will receive additional communications from the Warren City Health Department.
At this time, an additional six students have been quarantined and have already been contacted.
Anyone who has not been contacted has not been determined to be a contact of an individual who has tested positive for Coronavirus. However, if the school district receives additional or changing information, we will continue to review this situation and any individuals impacted will immediately be contacted by both a Warren City Schools administrator and a representative from the Warren City Health Department.
The decision to modify instruction for students was made by Superintendent Steve Chiaro and Harding Principal Dante Capers after analyzing current data.
