SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Nearly 150 students at Woodlawn High School are out because of COVID-19.

School officials say three students recently tested positive for COVID-19. Those that are out were identified as having close contact with these three students using contact tracing.

The Caddo Parish School Board says the three students tested positive between Tuesday, Dec. 14 and Wednesday, Dec. 15. School officials say they’re adhering to CDC protocols.

The school system released the following statement Thursday afternoon:

“This week, Woodlawn High School saw three students test positive for COVID-19. When following CDC guidelines, if a positive case has been identified as not wearing a mask, any close contacts within six feet for 15 minutes or longer that are unvaccinated must be quarantined. As a result, 145 people were sent home to quarantine. We applaud Woodlawn for following these guidelines in the interest of keeping a safe learning environment.”
