FAIRVIEW, Tenn. (WTVF) — Fairview High School has canceled its Friday night football game and will switch to remote learning two days next week due to COVID-19.

School officials announced the change Friday, saying all teachers and students will transition to remote learning on Monday and Tuesday. They said the attendance for students was only 67% on Friday.

“In consultation with the Health Department, due to the number of positive COVID-19 cases and number of students and staff in quarantine due to contact tracing, the Fairview High campus will be closed for the weekend after dismissal,” the school said in part.

The campus will also be closed for all weekend events to allow for cleaning and contact tracing. The school said students who aren’t quarantined and need wi-fi capability on Monday and Tuesday, should reach out to their grade level principal or Dr. Jones.

The school will reevaluate the situation at the end of the day on Tuesday.
