Centralia High School Going Remote, Other District Schools Not Impacted


After a second student tested positive for COVID-19, Centralia High School is switching to remote-only learning until September 21.
WJBD Radio reports two students and a faculty member have the virus. Superintendent Chuck Lane says since the two cases are within the last 14 days, this is considered an outbreak using standards from the Illinois Department of Public Health. He says  the student had not been in class since last Friday so he thinks the chance of close contact with other students will be minimal.

Other schools in  Centralia City School District 135 will remain on their normal schedule and continue with in person learning as usual. The temporary pause in student attendance at Centralia High School will not affect any students attending Centralia City Schools unless they are notified by the Marion County Health Department on an individual basis.
