WACO, TX — Rapoport Academy students at Meyer High School and Quinn Middle School will temporarily transition to remote learning due to COVID-19 cases.

All students and staff in grades 5-12 will move to remote learning beginning Monday, November 9 and return after the Thanksgiving holidays on Monday, November 30, according to a message sent to Rapoport parents.

The school says they were notified of two staff members testing positive for COVID with one likely in relation to a case reported earlier this week.

The size and number of staff members who will need to quarantine as a result of these recent two positive reports will make is impossible to maintain the number of staff required to operate the secondary campus effectively.

"Although teachers can be considered emergency workers and allowed to work when not symptomatic, even if knowingly exposed, Rapoport has made the decision to put the health of our students and staff first."

The school is not allowing staff or student who have been identified as close contact to return to campus until their 14 day quarantine is complete.
