CENTRAL POINT, Ore. -- Central Point Elementary School is going from teaching 250 students in-person to 40-50 high-needs students only.
Principal Walt Davenport says this change comes after seeing a surge of COVID-19 cases in the area.
Davenport said the health department recommended that the school not shut down completely, claiming that Central Point Elementary has yet to see a case in its building, but has been tracking possible exposures closely.
The Medford School District, in comparison, has 2 active student coronavirus cases and 7 active staff cases. Medford's district sees most of its cases from elementary schools. Several other schools in the district do not have cases at this time.
