ELK POINT, S.D. (KTIV) -- Pre-K through 5th-grade students at Elk Point-Jefferson Elementary are moving to online learning for the week of Oct. 20 - 22 due to positive cases of COVID-19.

According to a letter sent to parents, Oct. 19 and Oct. 23 were already "No School" days.

School officials say at least four classrooms needed to move to online learning due to positive cases in the building. Officials say they are also beginning to see additional students in other elementary grade levels with symptoms as well.

Teachers have sent home materials for the week with elementary students.

School administration says they have conducted the investigation of positive cases in the building and have already notified any close contacts.

The school district is requesting that parents and students monitor their symptoms during this time and to see their medical provider if you have concerns.
