The Berryhill Public Schools announced Wednesday that due to positive COVID-19 cases, Berryhill High School would shift to distance learning through October.

The district originally announced they would quarantine through September 14, but will now continue through the first nine weeks of their school year.

The district said the high school had two positive cases that led to many faculty and students in quarantine, and have had more positive cases since their August 28 test results.

The district said, "as we looked at all feasible scenarios, we believe that returning to in-person learning right now would inevitably necessitate another shut down."

Officials said that extra and co-curricular activities will also be delayed during the quarantine period and said they would begin again on September 12.
