Cedar Ridge was one of 106 school districts so far this school year that had to make adjustments in its operation due to the COVID-19 testing when five staff members and eight students tested positive for the virus just over two weeks ago.
Cedar Ridge Superintendent Dr. Sherry McMasters shared some good news about the school district in an interview with White River Now’s Gary B. earlier this week.
“We have no active cases right now and we still have a few people that are quarantined, because of their contact with is a COVID positive person. However, we came back to school on Sept. 21 and we’re going right along. Believe it or not, we are five weeks in to this semester,” McMasters shared.
Another Independence County school district that has faired quite well addressing COVID-19 is Midland School District. Superintendent Dr. Bruce Bryant says sometimes when it comes to a school district, a zero is a good score.
“We are glad to have ZERO positive cases and ZERO people quarantining that are associated with our district. Those are just wonderful numbers,” said Bryant.
