(Festus/Crystal City) St. Pius X High School officials are reporting that 3 students have tested positive for COVID-19.

According to St. Pius President Jim Lehn the students that tested positive have not been in class or on campus since school started.

Lehn says the safety and well-being of each student and faculty member at the school is of the utmost importance.

Last week administrators in the Festus School District announced they had a high school student athlete test positive for COVID-19.

Classes for St. Pius freshmen began last Friday with everyone else returning to class on Monday.
