COLORADO SPRINGS — Two high schools in Colorado Springs School District 11 are moving to remote learning Monday due to positive COVID-19 cases.

The district announced two positive cases were identified at Doherty High School, but due to a shortage of guest teachers, the school is moving to remote learning starting Monday, Nov. 2. These students will return for in-person learning on Tuesday, Nov. 10.

Palmer High School was also notified of two positive cases, leading them to place cohort "A" on a remote learning schedule until Tuesday, Nov. 10. The school's cohort "B" has already been in remote learning, but they will return for hybrid in-person learning this Thursday.

Those who are presumed positive will remain home until they are no longer infectious and those who were close to someone who is a probable positive case has been told to stay home from school for 14 days after the exposure.
