Whiteville High goes back to 100 percent online

Covid-19 News

Rising COVID-19 cases at Whiteville High School have put the school back on virtual learning through March 9, and postponed two upcoming football games.

The school system announced the change shortly after 4 p.m. Tuesday (today).

“Since Monday, we have seen a rise in the need for protective quarantines, as well as positive cases of COVID-19 at Whiteville High School,” Superintendent Marc Whichard said in a social media post. “Having consulted with health officials, as well as following our existing protocols, we have made this decision for WHS.”

The school system reminded parents to keep students from being in groups until the quarantine period is complete.

“This will assist us in returning to in-person learning for those that have chosen that option after March 9,” the statement said.

All athletic events and practices are postponed for the time being.
