COLORADO SPRINGS — Colorado Springs District 11 officials announced Monday morning individuals from two schools are being quarantined out of caution after being notified of two presumptive positive cases.

The district said two people from Doherty High School and Wilson Elementary School are being treated as probable positive COVID-19 cases since they were exposed to known positive cases.

Because of the quarantine, Doherty High School will postpone the start of full, in-person learning to Oct. 6. The schools will remain open to teachers and instructional support staff who are not quarantined, according to officials.

The district also said both schools will resume with remote learning and Wilson Elementary will begin to welcome students back to in-person learning this week.

Students began 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.
