INDIANAPOLIS — More than 80 fourth-grade students at Lew Wallace School 107 on Indy’s west side were originally told to quarantine after being exposed to COVID-19.

The number of students was later reduced to 61.

According to Indianapolis Public Schools, the parents of the students are being asked to quarantine their children for 14 days due to the students coming into close contact with a school staff member who tested positive for COVID-19.

Students will continue “synchronously and asynchronously with IPS-issued student devices during the quarantine period,” according to an IPS statement.

IPS reported the confirmed case to the Marion County Public Health Department. The school corporation noted that masks are required for all students and staffs in IPS schools regardless of vaccination status.
