According to the chart on the district’s website, 2,214 students and staff are in an active quarantine. That’s 7.85% of the district.

As of Tuesday, there are 298 active COVID-19 cases in the district. That’s 1.06% of the district.

Some of the schools hit the hardest are Will Rogers, Cheyenne and Summit. Which have a quarantine rate ranging from 24% to 28%.
