After more than two weeks away from campus, Warren County High School and Warren County Middle School students will return to class Monday.

Those students have been learning remotely since Thursday, Nov. 12, due to the high number of COVID cases at their schools.

“Our plan remains to return to in-person classes at WCHS and WCMS on Monday, Nov. 30,” said Director of Schools Grant Swallows. “We will remain diligent in checking our data for the coming days and continue to encourage everyone to remain healthy by following safety procedures. Both schools did very well in a shift to all-remote learning and we will employ that strategy again when needed. However, we hope to be able to get students back in our buildings safely for the remaining weeks of this semester.”

The number of active COVID cases in Warren County has dropped by 50.1% in just over a week. On Thursday, Nov. 19, there were 389 active cases in Warren County, according to the Tennessee Department of Health. On Friday, Nov. 27, there were 194 active cases.

Since the virus outbreak, there have been 19 total deaths in Warren County, the state reports.

WCHS and WCMS were the only two schools in the district to go completely virtual on Nov. 12. All other schools have continued with on-campus learning.

If COVID cases remain in check and students can continue with classroom learning, the next scheduled break is for Christmas. That break is set to begin Dec. 18.
