Special to GUIDON
Waynesville High School has moved students into Phase II — a reduced attendance arrangement — of the district’s reopening plan Tuesday due to an increase in the number of positive COVID-19 cases and those in quarantine.
As stated in the Waynesville R-VI School District’s Pandemic Reopening Guide, in Phase II, “a limited number of students with unique learning needs in grades 7 to 12 (in this case, grades 9 to 12) will be invited to attend school in person.”
All other high school students will be learning online from home and following their regular daily bell schedule.
Attendance will be taken each period.
All high school students are scheduled to return to the seated classroom Nov. 30.
During Phase II, additional precautions will be in place, including random screenings of students and additional daily cleaning.
High school athletes will be participating in virtual practices only.
The district, in close cooperation with the Pulaski County Health Center and Home Health Agency, has reached this decision in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 among high school students.
