Charlotte County schools placed on lockdown, officials say no threat

GLADES COUNTY, Fla. – All fifth-grade classes at West Glades School will go to virtual learning after seeing an increasing number of COVID-19 cases and quarantined students.

The switch to virtual learning will begin Monday, Aug. 23, and will return to in-class learning on Tuesday, Sept. 7, according to Glades County Schools.
