Seaside High School and Middle School campus

Three students and two staff members/volunteers have tested positive for the coronavirus at Seaside High School, the state disclosed.

The most recent onset of virus cases were on March 22, according to a weekly report of outbreaks released by the Oregon Health Authority last Wednesday.

Two positive cases tied to students were also reported at Astoria High School dating to March 20.

Seaside Superintendent Susan Penrod said there have been no hospitalizations among students or staff. All staff and families have been notified.

“We continue to diligently follow all the cleaning and safety requirements in the Ready Schools, Safe Learners document, as well as the communicable disease plan that is posted on our website,” Penrod said. “This plan is a collaborative effort developed by all the school nurses in our county.”

In March, Seaside High School Principal Jeff Roberts disclosed two confirmed virus cases among student-athletes, resulting in a canceled game for the Seaside football team against Banks.
