WACO, TX — Waco High School will transition to remote learning beginning Friday after 36 teachers are expected to be out due to COVID-19.

Principal James Stewart sent a letter to families and employees Thursday informing them of the change.

According to Stewart, Wednesday and Thursday, two more people at campus reported testing positive for COVID-19.

The school is expecting at least 36 teachers to be out Friday. Most of the teachers are quarantining after being in close contact with someone who tested positive for the virus.

Remote instruction will begin Friday, December 18. The campus will reopen for in-person instruction after winter break on January 5, 2021.

Students who also attend the Greater Waco Advanced Health Care Academy (GWAHCA) or the Greater Waco Advanced Manufacturing Academy (GWAMA) can continue to attend classes in-person but will need to arrange their own transportation.
