DONALDSONVILLE, La. (WAFB) - Ascension Catholic High School will be conducting classes virtually until Wednesday, Aug. 18, a representative for the school tells WAFB’s Perry Robinson.

Deacon Dan Borné said the school was informed two high school students contracted COVID-19 on Friday, Aug. 6.

During contact tracing, 13 additional cases among high schoolers were found, the school official said

“In an abundance of caution, and in an effort to halt the spread of the virus, ACHS began virtual instruction on Monday for all students in grades 9-12,” Borné said.

Students will return to in-class instruction on Wednesday, Aug. 18.

Grades K through 8 continue to meet for in-class instruction at the school.

“Upon further review, the principal told me that it’s actually a scrimmage that has been canceled with Catholic of Pt. Coupee that was scheduled for sometime next week. Don’t have the exact date,” added Borné.
