ELOY — Although the COVID-19 pandemic is slowly taking a turn to getting under control, Eloy Junior High School is moving to online learning until Nov. 15, as a total of four students and three staff members have tested positive for the virus.

Eloy Junior High Principal Danny Rogers sent a letter to all staff members and students’ families discussing the plan for the school moving forward.

“These positive cases have resulted in an additional 30 students having to quarantine at home for the next 10 days,” Rogers said in the letter. “EJHS must require these students and staff members to follow standard CDC Guidelines, including quarantine, as directed by the County Health Department.”

The school is reporting that many students have symptoms as well. In order to best protect the health and safety of all students and staff members, the school will move forward with the online learning schedule for the next two weeks.

Although the school will not be having students on campus during that period, it will still be offering food services for breakfast and lunch via drive-thru pickup between 8:30 a.m. and noon daily.

Unless families are notified otherwise, students will be eligible to return to campus on Monday, Nov. 15.
