Four more Year 11 students at Spalding High School have tested positive for COVID-19.
The news follows on from Wednesday, where the whole year group was instructed to self isolate for 14 days after three students returned positive tests. Two year groups at University Academy Holbeach are also in isolation.
In a letter to parents and carers, headmistress Michele Anderson said: "In the last 24 hours we have had four more positive confirmed cases withinYear 11, some of which have been asymptomatic.
"We wish these students a speedy recovery. Due to ouractions in instructing the year group to self-isolate, we have only had to make a very small number of closecontact phone calls today.
"I am writing to you today not just to notify you of these further positive cases but also to repeat our requestthat you all remain vigilant for symptoms (no matter how mild), organise a test and notify us of any positiveresults.
"I must also again stress that our Year 11 students should not be leaving their households and must followthe Stay At Home advice we sent home on Wednesday.
"The emergence of asymptomatic positive cases underlines the need for all of you to follow the regulations and thereby not transmit the virus unknowingly."
