"This closure is due to a sizable staff shortage due to quarantines after having been a close contact and a high number of student absences due to COVID-like symptoms," Magan said in a letter to parents and guardians. "We have confirmed positive cases among our students and staff and are waiting for multiple test results."

All sports and extracurricular activities have also been canceled.

Magan said the school is expected to return to in-person instruction Monday.
