MARICOPA — Maricopa Wells Middle School shut its doors on Nov. 17 and will not reopen until Nov. 30 after a COVID outbreak on campus.
Four cases were reported at Maricopa Wells on Nov. 6, Nov. 9, Nov. 13 and Nov. 16.
Maricopa Unified School District stated that those not in quarantine can continue any outside or after-school activities, and that the closure is partly because of a lack of available staff members.
“Due to the current number of quarantined staff, we are unable to provide adequate adult supervision to support in-person learning,” the announcement on the MUSD website stated.
Grab-and-go meals will be available for students to pick up from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the student drop-off lane near the cafeteria.
