WAUKESHA — Waukesha West High School is moving all classes online, as the school sees a jump in isolations and quarantines among students due to COVID-19.

Virtual learning will begin on Tuesday, Nov. 3 and is set to continue until Monday, Nov. 9. In-person learning is set to resume the next day, on Tuesday, Nov. 10, since Mondays classes are already virtual for students.

The school believes the break will limit the spread of the virus and allow for close contact tracing.

Students are not allowed to report to the high school during virtual instruction this week, the district says.

Athletics and activities will continue per usual during the shift.
