COVID-19 cases cause Claymont High School to move to remote learning

Claymont High School will be moving to remote learning beginning October 15 and returning to face-to-face instruction Friday, Oct. 23.

The school district decided to switch to remote learning due to three positive COVID-19 cases that has caused quarantine of Claymont High School students and staff.

Claymont's football game scheduled for Friday, Oct. 23 against Fairless has been canceled but all other sports will continue as scheduled during remote learning.

"Our district is committed to the safety and health of our students and staff," said Claymont City Schools superintendent Brian Rentsch. "We hope this transition to remote learning for this brief timeframe reduces the spread of COVID-19 at Claymont High School as it provides our custodians additional time to clean and disinfect the high school."
