NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The North Adams Public Schools informed the school community on Monday that it had learned of a positive case of COVID-19 at Brayton School. Children have not been in the classrooms at Brayton since Tuesday; the half-day Wednesday starting the Thanksgiving holiday was a remote-learning day.
A letter from Superintendent Barbara Malkas said cleaning and disinfecting of exposed locations will be completed according to state and federal guidelines. All students and staff who were in contact with the infected individual have been notified through contact tracing.
Staff and cohort A (Mondays & Tuesdays) students who were notified will be eligible to return to school on Dec. 7.
Students in cohort B (Thursdays & Fridays) who were notified will be eligible to return to school on Dec. 10.
Anyone with questions can contact the nurse leader for the district, Lauren Gage, at 413-662-3240, Ext. 2303, or email@example.com
The school system had several positive cases earlier in the month at Drury High School and shifted that school to remote learning until this week. An earlier case at one of the elementary schools did not result in a closure.
