MT. HEALTHY, Ohio — Students at Mt. Healthy Junior and Senior High Schools will learn remotely the rest of the week, according to a social media post from the district.

Students can pick up computers by driving down the one-way alley by the cafeteria between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Wednesday.

The move to remote learning does not affect students at North Elementary, South Elementary or the Early Learning Center, but elementary students will be able to pick up take-home computers on Wednesday.

The district cited a significant amount of COVID-19 cases and quarantines at the Junior and Senior High schools as the reason for the move to virtual learning. It did not highlight any longer-term plans if cases persist.
