SAN DIEGO — A middle school is returning to online learning and more than 100 students and eight teachers are in quarantine Monday after new cases of COVID-19 at Vista Unified schools.
The school district said a student at T.H.E. Leadership Academy Elementary School tested positive for the virus over the weekend, which led 28 students and one teacher to pivot to virtual learning Monday.
Two more cases were confirmed at Rancho Minerva Middle School. The district initially said 82 students and seven teachers would move back to virtual learning as they quarantined. Vista Unified said the entire school will now return to virtual instruction after a second case at the school was confirmed.
The district said based on the information available, they believe the cases were contracted outside of the school environment. Both groups of students are scheduled to return to in-person learning on Nov. 12.
