HANOVER, Ill. -- A Jo Daviess County school district is moving some of its students to remote learning after multiple students and a teacher contracted COVID-19.

Students in prekindergarten through second grade in the River Ridge district will take classes remotely starting on Thursday, Nov. 18, and return to in-person instruction on Nov. 29, according to an online announcement.

It states that multiple students and a teacher recently tested positive for COVID-19 in the prekindergarten-through-second-grade wing of the district's elementary school.

Teachers will reach out to families with additional information, and students who need laptops and chargers will have them sent home with them.

Students in third through fifth grades will continue learning in-person unless they test positive or have a close contact with a COVID-19 case.
