Wallingford Public Schools has suspended its summer school program after they were notified a person in the program is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.

Superintendent Salvatore Menzo said in a letter to families that the person started experiencing symptoms on Friday but has not been in the program since last Monday.

"Out of an abundance of caution, we are suspending in-person summer school sessions until we know the results of the test," Menzo said in a statement.

"Even though we do not have a confirmed case and the Center for Disease Control recommends suspending programming in the event an infected person has been present in a program, we still believe suspending the in-person session is the most prudent action to take at this time," Menzo continued.

Maintenance staff will also be conducting a deep cleaning of all classrooms, Menzo said.

Students and staff who could have come in contact with the person experiencing symptoms will be contacted individually, Menzo said.
