Rockvale High School is joining Stewarts Creek High in closing over COVID-19.

James Evans, communications director for Rutherford County Schools, made the announcement Monday afternoon.

“The school is reporting a high number of students on quarantine, as well as several staff members,” Evans said. “As such, we are planning to temporarily close the school and will move all students to distance learning beginning Tuesday. We don’t have an exact reopen date yet. Instead, we will monitor the number of students and employees on quarantine and will announce a reopening date for in-person students as soon as we have additional information.”

The school will also be thoroughly cleaned while closed, Evans said.
