Covid infections have swept through the school on Maple Avenue at such a rate, Principal Richard Seigel was forced to make a decision. As a parent of students at the school, the phone rang late this morning to announce that the school was immediately suspending in-person learning for 1st and 2nd grades. Parents/Guardians were asked to make arrangements to have the children picked up at school before lunch, to avoid any unnecessary additional exposures.
As the day progressed, more positive tests emerged and the school administrator had to make a decision:
“In recent days we have had an increase in positive cases. I have thought long and hard about this and have come to the conclusion that, at this time, what is safest for our students is to go virtual until after Christmas break. If you need an iPad, or paper packets, please let us know and we will work to have this ready by Thursday for pick up at school. “
