Creekview has become the third High School in Cherokee County to close so far this school year due to COVID-19. Creekview joins Woodstck and Etowah in closing for the rest of the month, leaving Cherokee, River Ridge, and Sequoyah as the only High Schools still open in Cherokee County.
According to a press release from the Cherokee County School District "Reopening is tentatively scheduled for Monday, Aug. 31. This decision was made with the support of School Board Members and in consideration with the Department of Public Health. Over this weekend, the number of positive cases at Creekview High School has increased to a total of 25, with 500 of its 1,800 in-person students now under precautionary quarantine, and additional tests pending that would significantly increase the quarantine total. We understand these closings create hardships and are disappointing to students who want to learn in-person as well as their families, but these are necessary measures to avoid potential spread within our schools."
Creekview will begin online classes on Tuesday, August 18th.
