CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Amelia Elementary School is shut down Thursday due to a staff member testing positive for COVID-19, according to a spokesman for the West Clermont Local School District.

School officials also plan to send out a notice to all students and staff and alert the class with the case and then personal contact those who had direct contact with the person, said Jeff Riel.

“Since we were notified shortly before buses began leaving to pick up students at AE, we closed that school out of an abundance of caution to ensure we conducted thorough contact tracing and completed a deep clean of the entire school. Additional custodial staff were called in to assist with the cleaning of the building," Riel said.

Amelia Elementary ONLY is closed today—Thursday, October 15, 2020. This will not be considered a remote learning day for students. All other West Clermont schools are in session.
