Seaside High School and Middle School campus

A student-athlete has tested positive for the coronavirus, Seaside High School Principal Jeff Roberts said.

The Seaside School District sent a note to parents Tuesday afternoon informing them of the positive case.

The case comes as the school district opens the new high school and middle school campus to students.

The student has not been in the campus building, nor has anyone from that residence been in the building, Roberts said at the school district’s board meeting on Tuesday.

“With this environment, there’s a cost to doing business,” he said.

All students and staff that came in direct contact with the student have been notified and are required to quarantine at home. Roberts said they are not to attend practice. “We will continue to work with the local health authority to provide as much information to those families as we can and to get them back into the building when it’s safe to do so,” he said.
