Farifield Ludlowe High School has closed again just one day after reopening because officials say three more students have test positive for COVID-19.
Superintendent Mike Cummings informed parents about the closure in a letter.
More than 30 students were placed in quarantine because of the new cases, which brings the total number of students and staff in quarantine to more than 80.
The school was first closed last Thursday and Friday after 14 students tested positive for the virus.
Officials say most students who tested positive attended parties with no masks or social distancing.
Though the three new cases aren't linked to the original cases, officials say the students played pickup football and basketball among other activities.
Officials say the school could open as early as Friday if no new cases are reported.
