Murray County School Superintendent Steve Loughridge said on Thursday he does not plan to close Murray Schools and switch to virtual classrooms at this time.
Loughridge said Murray County High School has been hard hit by COVID-19 quarantine cases, involving both teachers and students, but classes would continue to be held at the school for now.
Few students or teachers in the system actually have COVID-19, Loughridge emphasized, but health guidelines require other students or teachers who may have been in contact with the infected students to be quarantined. Loughridge also said most of the students with COVID-19 "got it outside of school."
Loughridge said it was important to continue face-to-face instruction.
"We're going to go until we can't go anymore," he said.
