Leetonia students go to remote learning

LEETONIA — All Leetonia students are on remote learning through at least Dec. 4.

The school went remote on Monday after a student and staff member tested positive for the coronavirus over the weekend which required enough students to be quarantined to make the remote learning necessary, according to schools Superintendent Dennis Dunham.

All activities including sports have been suspended through Dec. 2. Student athletes will return to competition the week of Dec. 7 if it is safe. All games through Dec. 6 will be postponed and rescheduled at a later date.

In a statement posted online, Dunham said the goal is to provide a full season of winter sports.

“The ability to mitigate COVID-19 quarantine numbers at this time will hopefully provide opportunities for our student athletes to complete a full winter sports season,” he said. “The decision to suspend and delay the start of the athletic season is out of an abundance of caution and is in the best interest for our student athletes health and safety at this time.”

Dunham said the situation will be re-evaluated next week to determine the number of positive cases and quarantines.

The district had two previous positive cases in students so far this school year.
