WESTON, CT — The public school buildings will remain closed, with students learning from home, through Tuesday.
"We shifted into the Temporary Remote Learning mode so we could investigate two cases of COVID-19 in the District," officials posted on the public schools' website Monday afternoon. "We require at lest one more day to follow up on contact tracing already underway."
School officials said they have contacted the people "who may be associated with the two cases," and advise those they have not contacted to presume their risk of contracting the virus from this situation to be very low.
District officials said they learned of the first positive case at 8:30 on Sunday night, and made the decision to shift to remote learning then, for Monday's classes.
The schools are coordinating with the Westport/Weston Health District as well as their medical advisor. The district is following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as the state Department of Health, according to the notification.
The decision regarding the schedule for Wednesday's classes will be made by late Tuesday afternoon, officials posted.
