MAYFIELD, Ohio (WOIO) - Starting Nov. 10, Mayfield High School students will only be going to class virtually, due to the number of students and staff members who have either tested positive for COVID-19 or are in quarantine.

School officials said they learned Monday morning three Mayfield High School students tested positive for COVID-19.

And, there are about 24 staff members at the high school in quarantine.

Officials said the number of those in quarantine is expected to increase before the end of the day.

Superintendent Dr. Keith Kelly said the earliest high school students could return to in-person learning would be after Thanksgiving break.

Kelly said all high school staff, except those in quarantine, will report to the building and teach remotely from their classrooms and offices.

The following Mayfield Schools and program remain open:

  • Excel TECC
  • CEVEC
  • Mayfield Preschool
  • Mayfield Middle School
  • All elementary schools
  • Wildcat Sport & Fitness
  • Athletics, co-curricular and extra curricular programs
  • Mayfield Health & Welness Clinic
  • Select special education programming

“Families, we ask, if you have not already done so, please formulate your plan for a transition to full remote learning if you are in-person. I am trying to avoid a sweeping decision that requires all schools and programs to go full remote,” said Kelly.
