Kenosha elementary school returns to virtual learning amid COVID spike

KENOSHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Grewenow Elementary school, part of the Kenosha Unified School District, is going virtual because of a spike in positive COVID cases.

School officials say they're at 2.5 percent for positive cases right now among students and staff.

In a letter to parents officials said that, while the school's threshold is 3 percent but they will switch to temporary virtual learning for students because of the number of symptomatic students. 

Starting today, students will switch to virtual learning through at least Oct. 1st.

A return date to in-person learning will be figured out by the middle of next week.

The building will be closed today to be disinfected -- and teachers will work remotely today only.
