Students will return to Austinville Elementary School on Tuesday.
The school did virtual learning only on Monday after a staff member tested positive for coronavirus.
Decatur City Schools issued a statement Monday afternoon that says 49 students and 16 staff members are quarantining due to close contact with the individual who tested positive.
“Of those 16 staff members, 3 are in-person/traditional teachers in grades PreK, K & 4th,” the district’s statement said.
It says only three substitutes are needed to cover those classes.
According to the statement, the remainder of the staff members in quarantine include the reading/math coach, library staff, intervention staff, front office staff, EL staff and a substitute.
The district says if your student was not directly contacted by the school, they were not exposed to the individual who tested positive.
