BUTLER, Pa. (KDKA) – Another district is switching some of its students to online-only learning.

The Butler Area School District is moving all middle and high school students to remote learning. Students in grades 7 through 12 will log in for class from Tuesday through at least Friday.

It’s a move that comes because of a spike in coronavirus cases within the district and the community it serves, the superintendent says.

According to a message from the superintendent, “members of the learning community” have tested positive for coronavirus and numerous employees have been quarantined over the past week.

District leaders plan to re-evaluate next Friday.
