St Katharine Drexel Going Virtual For Two Weeks Due To Coronavirus

(Beaver Dam) A private school in Beaver Dam is going virtual for the next two weeks because of COVID-19. Saint Katharine Drexel Parish School sent a letter to parents Tuesday that says the quarantine is being implemented out of an “abundance of caution” after a “number of individuals” tested positive. The grades identified were first, second, third and seventh but the letter notes that all students in 4K through eighth grade have been deemed a “close contact.” The individuals infected were not in attendance this week, making this past Friday the most recent time of contact. Virtual classes begin Wednesday with a return to in-person instruction on Monday, October 19 “pending changing circumstances.”
