Jan. 8, 2022 11:15a

(WGTD)---Kenosha Unified students at a total of eight schools are in virtual learning mode after their buildings hit a 3% COVID positivity threshold in recent days.

They include all three of the district's comprehensive high schools--Tremper, Bradford and Indian Trail. Elementary schools on the list include Grant, Harvey and Whittier plus two charter schools--the K-8 Dimensions of Learning and Harborside Academy, which serves middle school and high school students in the Reuther building. 

The 3% rule which requires schools to close after 3% of students and staff test positive for COVID in a 10-day period has been in place since nearly the start of the pandemic. 

The number of students that have been assigned to virtual learning is about a-third of the district's total enrollment of nearly 20,000 students. 

In-person instruction is expected to resume Tuesday, Jan. 18th. 

Also, the district has canceled the athletic schedule through at least Monday, Jan. 17th.
