COVID-19 forced the closing Friday of northwest Shawnee County's Rossville Grade School and Rossville Junior/Senior High School in Kaw Valley USD 321.

It wasn't immediately clear when those schools would reopen.

School remained in session Monday in the district's St. Marys Grade School and St. Marys Junior/Senior High School in southeast Pottawatomie County, superintendent Kerry Lacock said on his Facebook page.

Fifteen students and one staff member were in active isolation from Rossville Junior/Senior High School while five students were in active isolation from Rossville Grade School, that site said.

It indicated 51 students were in quarantine from Rossville Junior/Senior High School and 22 from Rossville Grade School.

"Nurses and school personnel have spent all day contacting parents and students who have been determined to be close contacts," Lacock wrote on that page early Thursday evening.
