Carlsbad High School returns to remote learning amid COVID spike

Carlsbad High School (CHS) will go back to remote learning for 10 days starting Monday Aug. 16 after the district received confirmation of two new COVID-19 cases less than a week after school started.

Parents throughout Carlsbad should be prepared to have students in a remote setting for at least 14 days if cases continue to rise according to an announcement that was sent to parents on Aug. 13 by Carlsbad Municipal Schools (CMS).

“We are trying to disrupt families and routines as little as possible and keep students in an in-person learning environment,”  read the letter to parents signed by CMS Superintendent Dr. Gerry Washburn.

The district is also moving all students from the Carlsbad Intermediate School-P.R. Leyva campus to remote learning.
