"We continue to communicate with the Cuyahoga County Board of Health regarding these students. We are working with the CCBH to conduct contact tracing at this time and they will call the families of any students that need to quarantine," a statement from the district read. 

One of the students is a third grader at Parma Park Elementary School and the other is a ninth grader at Valley Forge High School. Both students have not been in attendance at either learning facility since Friday.
