Spring Grove Area High School will close for two weeks after two new cases of COVID-19 were reported on Tuesday, according to a news release on the school district's website.

Students transitioned to virtual learning on Wednesday and will not resume in-person learning until Dec. 1. The affected areas in the high school have been cleaned and sanitized, and no other buildings in the district will close, the release states.

"As a reminder, please continue to closely monitor your child’s health and seek medical attention if any symptoms arise that are new and/or not explained by another reason," wrote Superintendent George W. Ioannidis.
