Students at Collegiate Academy at Weis will take classes online from Monday to Friday as a large number of staff members possibly exposed to COVID-19 go into quarantine, according to a district letter released Friday. 

All students who attend the school, 7100 Stewart Road, will learn remotely next week as the staff members who were identified as a close contact to a positive COVID-19 case wait out their quarantine periods, according to Galveston Independent School District. 

Teachers and staff not in quarantine will still give instruction from the school and athletics and extracurricular activities will continue, according to the district. 

Free, curbside meals are available at Ball High School, 4115 Ave. O, from 5 to 6 p.m. Monday. 

Crews will deep clean Collegiate next week, according to the district. 

Other Galveston schools have closed in-person learning because of positive cases and quarantined staff.
