JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Fletcher High School will remain closed to in-person learning and extra-curricular activities due to positive COVID-19 cases through Oct. 28, Duval County Public Schools (DCPS) confirms.
In a message to parents, Fletcher principal, James Ledford, says the Florida Department of Health is reporting more than 30 positive cases associated with the school’s community.
“Due to the high number of positive cases it is difficult for the Department of Health to accurately identify all close contacts, but it is clear that the number of close contacts would exceed the district’s threshold requiring the school to isolate if more than 20 percent of the students are needing to quarantine,” Ledford said in the message.
Ledford said the school will remain in online learning through Duval HomeRoom through Oct. 28. He said all extracurricular activities, including athletic practice and competitions will be suspended during this time.
