PHOENIX — A student at Valley Lutheran High School has tested positive for coronavirus, causing the quarantine of several other students.

Principal Kat Stokes told ABC15 Tuesday morning that the student tested positive on Monday.

"Valley Lutheran informed all families and other necessary parties early morning Oct. 6," a letter from Stokes reads.

Students in classes with the student who tested positive are quarantining until Oct. 12, and the student who tested positive is quarantining for 14 days. Classrooms and common areas have also reportedly been disinfected.

Students who are asked to stay home will "immediately begin learning via our Synchronous Remote Learning experience until cleared to return," a letter to parents says.

"Currently, there is no evidence of spread or outbreak as we practice social distancing and mask-wearing while inside buildings, however, we are monitoring the situation," Stokes says.
