The district said that because the student was doing remote learning, the student posed “no close contact concerns with respect to contact tracing.”


They wished the student a successful recovery and said they wouldn’t share any more information about the student to protect their confidentiality.


The school system will continue to monitor the situation with the health department and provide additional information as needed.
