Brookfield Public Schools will be remote from Nov. 17 through Dec. 4. The schools plan to switch to a hybrid model on Dec. 7.
Fairfield Public Schools announced six new coronavirus cases in the district - three at Fairfield Warde, one at Roger Ludlowe, one at Jennings and one at McKinley.
The Fairfield school district says three bus drivers serving routes at Fairfield Warde, Roger Ludlowe and Dwight have also tested positive.
Those who tested positive, as well as people who came in contact with them, are quarantining. No schools are closing at this time.
All high school and middle school students will continue with distance learning through Jan. 8, 2021.
The district said because of the rise in cases, 181 staff members reported absent, which is the reason it is switching middle and high schoolers to full remote.
