AVON — Avon High School will move to e-learning beginning Thursday through Dec. 3 because of an increase in COVID-19 cases and high numbers of staff and student quarantines.

The district announced the move on Wednesday. In a note posted to the school's website, Principal Matt Shockley said the plan to return in full in-person learning on Dec. 4.

Shockley said the high school learned on Wednesday that seven students had tested positive for COVID-19.

"Through eLearning, our teachers will be able to provide quality instruction for students while quarantining at home," Shockley said. "Thankfully, due to the experience of our virtual learning last semester as well as a team of teachers, administrators, and counselors who spent their summer putting together an eLearning plan, I feel confident that Avon High School is ready to implement a quality eLearning program that will engage our student learners."
