Students to learn remotely this week following 2 COVID-19 cases at Jettie Tisdale School
All students at the Jettie Tisdale School will learn from home this week after two staff members tested positive for COVID-19.
Testing was held Tuesday at the school, where families told News 12 they are glad tests were offered. One mother says she wishes the school had done this before the year started.
Parents say they are wrestling with what to do next - either send their children back to school or try learning at home.
Testing is scheduled on Wednesday for Park City.
Meanwhile, Gov. Ned Lamont says he doesn't want to see schools closing their buildings because of isolated coronavirus cases. He is also urging districts that are only offering distance learning to consider revisiting their plans.
The superintendent tells News 12 if there are more positive tests from Tuesday, it's possible the school could stick to distance learning for longer. As of right now, officials say they plan to have students return to school next week.
