Henderson ISD is moving six classes at its Northside Intermediate School to virtual education for the next two weeks due to teachers from those classes testing positive for COVID-19.
Superintendent Dr. Thurston Lamb said the decision to move the students online was made because more teachers are contracting the virus.
