SEVERN, Md. — Students at ArchBishop Spalding High School in Severn will finish the week solely virtually.
Earlier reports indicated a couple students may have tested positive for COVID-19.
While the school wouldn't confirm any cases, they did cite student safety as their reasoning to temporarily transition back to online learning.
“The health and safety of all members of our school communities is our top priority. The decision to move to virtual instruction for the remainder of the week was made out of an abundance of caution. Our extensive planning and preparation for both in-person and remote learning gives us the flexibility to shift between the two modes of instruction as needed.”
Spalding along with some other Catholic schools in the Archdiocese have chosen to start the year off with in-person instruction. Parents and students however were given the choice to attend or remain online.
