Griswold Public Schools will move to full remote learning beginning Monday and continuing through December 23 after two people at Griswold Elementary School tested positve for COVID-19, according to school superintendent Sean McKenna.
The school district is also monitoring several possible cases awaiting test results, McKenna said in a letter to parents on Saturday.
The two people who tested positive were last in the elementary school on Monday, December 7, he said. Anyone who is considered a close contact of the infected individuals has been contacted by the school or will be contacted shortly.
The superintendent said he hopes to resume the hybrid model beginning on January 4 but the district will continue to monitor COVID-19 metrics in town and through the state before making that decision. Parents will be notified about those plans prior to January 4.
