Tremont High School going remote after one third of students are quarantined

TREMONT (WEEK) - Tremont District #702 Superintendent Sean Berry notified parents of Tremont High School students they will be going remote until December 7th. No other Tremont schools are impacted. The grade school and middle school will continue with in-person learning.

In a letter sent Sunday afternoon, Berry said they have received "reports of additional COVID-19 cases at the high school." Berry said with the new cases and recent spike across the area around 1/3 of the high school is impacted by the resulting quarantine.

The plan is to return to in-person learning at the high school on Monday December 7.

Tremont High School made a similar move in late October. Administrators said they felt the "pause and rest was effective initially."

Students are expected to communicate with teachers daily while also checking in for attendance. Families without reliable internet access are asked to contact the school.

If a student is not under quarantine they can get materials from the school Monday or Tuesday between 7:45-3:30.

School lunches will be available on a "to-go" basis and can be picked up at the school but must call the district office in advance.
