By KNSS Radio

More Kansas schools have ended in-person classes and canceled sports because of coronavirus exposure and team quarantines. 

Both Haysville and Derby have quarantined their high school football teams. Chanute has canceled football games, but is continuing in-person classes. The school board in Atwood overruled the superintendent’s decision to move classes to remote learning then later reversed course. 

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment is expected to identify active coronavirus clusters on Wednesday, including outbreaks at schools and on sports teams. State health officials reported on Monday 53,959 confirmed cases and 600 deaths _ an increase of 1,674 cases and four deaths over the weekend.
