MCGREGOR, TX — McGregor Primary School temporarily transitioned to remote learning Friday after positive COVID-19 cases at the campus forced a number of staff members to be placed in quarantine.

McGregor Primary School transitioned to remote learning through Friday, October 23, according to a letter sent to parents.

The campus will reopen on Monday, October 26, for on-campus instruction.

On Friday, there were three active cases on the primary campus. However, contact tracing resulted in the closure of two classrooms and 13 staff members being placed in quarantine.

"While our teachers will be able to teach remotely while quarantining, the number of employees out makes it difficult to appropriately supervise students without bringing them together in large groups," McGregor ISD Superintendent James Lenamon said.

During the closure, the entire campus will receive a deep cleaning. The district will also monitor the status of quarantined individuals.

"If the number of positive cases continues to increase, a decision about extended closure will be considered," Lenamon said.

All other McGregor ISD campuses will remain open.
