COTTONWOOD, Calif. - Evergreen Union School District in Shasta County had to close their doors to students again after three positive coronavirus tests.
Superintendent Brad Mendenhall says it was a very hard decision to make.
"Being able to support our parents and their ability to go to work and do what they need to do also weighs heavy on us, we understand that when we close school it has a major impact to students," said Mendenhall.
Mendenhall says even though it's only three cases they wanted to make sure it didn't spread.
Mendenhall says all students were given an emergency packet to work on just in case school has to close again.
"So they have been instructed to work on those packets for today and tomorrow and beginning tomorrow we will start passing out Chromebooks again," said Mendenhall.
Jennifer Muller never sent her son back to school, but says she understands why the school is closing again.
"I think people are just trying to protect people I mean I think they are trying to do the best they can," said Muller.
Muller says the district is doing a great job making sure students have what they need.
"I know our home-school teacher is doing a great job, and they are very informative and really on top of it, I think they have adjusted really well," says Muller.
Muller's son say virtual learning has its benefits.
"I don't have to wake up really early, I don't have to look really nice for school, I get to spend more time with my mom," said Brandon Brath.
Students can pick up their Chromebooks at the Elementary School or the Middle School, but can only pick up their requested hot-spots at the Middle School.
Muller also wants to remind parents that they need to stay in their cars with their masks on when they pick up equipment.
He also says they will decide if they will go back to in person classes over Thanksgiving break.
In Mendenhall's statement online he added, "we will be able to continue the following programs under the small cohort allowances beginning Monday, November 9th: Preschool at EES, Community Day School at EMS, and EES and EMS Special Day Classes."
Bend Elementary School and Evergreen Institute of Excellence will remain open.
