COLORADO SPRINGS — District 11 officials confirmed Wednesday morning two positive COVID-19 cases at an elementary school.

The district said they were notified of a new positive case at Wilson Elementary School on top of their earlier notification this week of a presumptive positive case at the school, which has been confirmed as positive.

The district was treating the individual as a probable COVID-19 case since they were exposed to known positive cases and out of caution, placed individuals in contact with them in quarantine.

As a result of these two cases, the school will now move to remote learning starting Wednesday, Sept. 23, until Oct. 7. The preschool will also be closed during this time.

Students were being welcomed back into Wilson Elementary this week after starting the school year on Aug. 24 with a hybrid model, targeting students with the greatest academic need for levels of in-school support.

Officials announced earlier this month that they would begin phasing elementary and middle school students back into the classrooms for in-person learning starting this week.
