COVID Closes Moline High School

Moline High School will be closed for the next two weeks. Over the weekend, the district announced students will attend only virtual classes from Monday September 28 through Friday October 9 because of an increase in positive COVID-19 cases.

In recent days, rising numbers of students and staff have been excluded from school due to potential exposure to the coronavirus.
The two-week closing was recommended by the Rock Island County Health Department to minimize further spread at the high school. And it affects only Moline High School, and not any others in the district where “blended learning” will continue.
During this time, the high school will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized, following state health and safety guidelines.

The District will continue to offer free meal pick up for any remote learning students in the district on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at Wilson and John Deere Middle Schools from 9:30-11:30am.
