CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Rossview Middle School will be closed to in-person learning Monday due to the number of staff on quarantine.

Principal Julie Hallums informed parents that the school saw a higher employee absentee rate last week, due partly to mandatory quarantines.

As a result, traditional students must learn remotely Monday, September 28.

Hallums said in-person classes will resume Tuesday, when most faculty and staff are expected to return.

"Please know that I understand a change like this presents challenges for families," Hallums said. "Over the past three weeks, our school has had 6 positive COVID-19 cases which led to over 100 quarantines. While the Montgomery County Health Department has not linked these cases, it is important to reiterate how just one positive case entering the school environment can impact our community."

Hallums added that teachers have communicated with students how to access Monday's lessons.
