Cheshire High School had an emergency early dismissal this morning after it was reported an employee at the school reported experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19.
Superintendent of Schools Dr. Jeff Solan sent an email to parents earlier Monday morning announcing that a food services employee was the reporting the symptoms. That person was not physically at the school Monday, Solan confirmed to The Herald.
“Unfortunately, the working conditions in the kitchen are such that our other food service staff are potential close contacts,” explained Solan.
Early dismissal commenced at 11:15 a.m. on Monday. All high school students will be scheduled for remote learning on Tuesday. Wednesday, under the current hybrid model employed at the high school, was already a scheduled remote-learning day.
“We are planning on returning Thursday pending the outcome of this PCR test,” Solan stated, in the email. Solan did not state when those test results were expected.
