A statement from MPS on the announcement read, “Students, families, and staff at these schools were notified about the transition to virtual learning. The decision to move to virtual learning was made to decrease the likelihood of spreading COVID-19, due to the school community reporting that 3 percent or more of the total school population has tested positive for COVID-19 within a 14-day period.”

MPS added that other MPS schools will remain open and conduct in-person learning at this time.
