LAKE MILLS — Lake Mills High School will close for the rest of this week, after a third positive COVID-19 case was reported at the school this week.

“According to the guidance we sent to families in fall, we will be immediately shifting to virtual instruction until Monday, Sept. 21, at the high school level only. This will allow the district to deep clean and disinfect the building and mitigate further spread,” said Dr. Tonya Olson, district administrator.

The elementary and middle schools will operate as normal as there are currently no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in these locations. Olson said if anything changes at the other schools, families will be notified.

“The safety of our students and staff is our highest priority. I am confident in the work our staff has done to provide a seamless transition between learning environments.”

All extra-curricular practices and events were canceled until Friday.
