·1 min read

General Trass High School in East Carroll Parish is closing campus "due to COVID-related concerns."

The school will go to solely virtual learning from Jan. 11 through Jan. 24, according to an online statement. The statement reads that there is insufficient staffing at the school due to COVID-19 to meet in-person operational needs.

"Great care and thought went into this decision; however, we regret the hardships this will cause for some of our families," the statement reads. "At this time, we believe that this is the right step to take for the health and safety of our students, families, employees, and the community at large."
