Update: Rehobeth Middle School set to open on Wednesday, October 21



Rehobeth Middle School will return to school on Wednesday, October 21, 2020, according to the Houston County Board of Education.


REHOBETH, Ala. (WDHN) — For the second time in two weeks, Houston County Schools Superintendent David Sewell has made the decision to close a local school due to increasing coronavirus cases.

Rehobeth Middle School is closed starting Monday “until further notice,” according to an email sent to WDHN News from Superintendent Sewell’s secretary.

The email notes a “high volume of Covid cases” as the reason for the immediate closure of the middle school. The closure does not include the elementary or high school.

On October 3, Cottonwood High School was closed after several several staff members tested positive for COVID-19. At that time, the school had difficulty finding substitutes and the school was temporarily closed.

Cottonwood High School will reopen this Wednesday, October 14.
