L-P High School

Student COVID cases are up in ten school districts in La Salle County. L-P is among them.

On the school's Facebook page Wednesday, Superintendent Dr. Steven Wrobleski says 146 in-person students are home in quarantine. Overall, he added, 196 are in quarantine – that's 16.7% of the total student body. The school has noted an increase of students that were in close contact becoming positive. Wrobleski said they can't confirm that it's happening in the classroom at this time.

While he's not ready to declare a remote learning environment, Wrobleski said, the school is closely monitoring this situation. The school is a bit anxious with graduation nearing.

Last week folks with Holy Family School in Oglesby took to their Facebook page to remain vigilant as they are seeing an uptick in cases and close contacts. They're trying to finish the school year with in-person learning.
