The administration notified its community Wednesday of at least two positive coronavirus cases at its upper-division.

School officials dismissed its upper-class students early and began remote learning Thursday.

Students will return to campus after fall break on October 6.

School administrators said they used contact and location tracing to figure out if the COVID cases happened off campus. Out of an abundance of caution school officials decided to move to all virtual learning for the upper school.

A spokesperson sent FOX13 the safety procedures St. George is taking to alleviate and closely monitor the situation.

It has notified the Shelby County Health Department of the positive cases and is working closely to help with contact tracing.

The school is also taking extra cleaning protocols on campus outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
