Three staff members at Colchester Elementary School have tested positive for COVID-19 and other staff and some students who came in contact with them have been quarantined, Superintendent Jeffrey Burt said in a post on the school district's website on Monday.

The number of staff members in quarantine meant the school could not remain open to provide instruction to all students, Burt said.

The school will reopen on Oct. 5, if it is safe to do so.
