Possible student exposure to COVID-19 at a non-school event last weekend has forced Litchfield schools to be on remote learning on Friday, the district has announced.
According to a letter from the district:

“It came to our attention that several of our students, across multiple schools, attended a non-school event last weekend and had prolonged exposure with a positive COVID-19 case. We have worked with Torrington Area Health District and initiated the isolation, quarantine, and contact tracing process.”

The letter goes on to say that the decision to go all remote on Friday is due to the “complex nature of this case” and out of “an extreme amount of caution.”
It says the district will share more about the status of the school in the coming days “and the latest by Sunday evening.”
