Holland alerted parents today (Jan. 13) through a letter of the Arcadia High School case.

“Arcadia High School will remain OPEN during this time,” Holland said in the letter. “We are working closely with our local health department to identify any individuals who had close contact with the person to determine if they might have been exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19.”
