Spokesperson Nicole Montgomery declined to say how many high school band students were quarantining.

The school district said in the release it was notified Saturday by the state Department of Health that students should be quarantined after coming into "close contact with a person deemed to be considered a probable case for COVID-19."   

Dallastown schools are scheduled to open Sept. 8. The district is offering full in-person instruction and also has a hybrid option and a fully cyberschool option.
